7 hose golden days, how quickly gone. 
And gone the dream thai We still believe. 
For who shall rate the dream less true 
1 han life, which calls hut to deceive. 

1 he breath that blooms the rose of Spring. 
In Autumn blights it with decay. 
And e'en the flower of fairest hue 
Must droop and fade and pass away. 


As cne by one its petals fall. 

So one by one those days have flown, 

And o'er them all fond memory 

Has paused, and marked them for her own.

M. A. LL. D., * B K 

Amid the sea of populace a wave 

Of towering heighth; a hill within the plain 

Of common thought; thy words so full and sane 

Refresh all minds and make mankind thy slave: 

The epic in thy soul, in language brave 

Is poured upon instruction's mighty main 

1 o seek each willing heart, each worthy brain, 

From doubt and fear and ignorance to save. 

Successful in a lofty, worthy cause 

1 o lead a noble institution on 

Most justly hast thou won the land's applause. 

The ones to come shall bless thee, as these gone: 

Thou well hast builded for the common weal, 

Thy precepts just, thy resolutions steel. 



Professor of German. 

Who sees thy face sees kindness, lord of all, 
And that the soul is there, behind thine eyes 
Is surety and faith and not surmise; 
A soul to help and aid what e'er befall, 
A soul to harken to each earnest call. 
To save from folly; make us truly wise 
As thou art ; give to us an humble guise 
To stand before thee in thy learning's hall: 
As oft before, in our simplicity 
We ask thee to vouchsafe a greater light 
To teach our falt'ring, erring eyes to see. 
Our ears to hear thy precepts — learn aright: 
We learn from thee the law of gentleness. 
And with the others gone, thy name to bless. 

J. RAMOND BRACKETT, B. A., M. A., Ph. D., X * 

Professor of English Literature. 

Our Nestor! In far fields have labored long; 
Thy thoughts are music and thy voice its lute 
That can to other's hearts those thoughts transmute; 
A worthy labor of the brave and strong 
To teach the right in lore, to shun the wrong: 
We pray that to resolve each mad dispute 
Of critics, be thy valued struggle's fruit, 
To touch the heart the laurel of thy song. 
On fruitful soil may each fair seed be sown 
To bring forth richly its one hundred fold; 
Through each seed, nourished in the heart and grown 
i hy patient, kind forbearance be extolled: 
A noble work, to teach the mind of youth. 
Forever, truth is all and beauty truth. 

Professor of Surgery. 

What nobler office than relieving pain, 

Relieving half the sting of suffering 

That maladies to weakly mankind bring. 

To hold pale death in check, remove the bane 

Of hungry horrors; shake the aged reign 

Of grisly ailments; would that I could sing 

A deeper song, that from my lips might spring 

Acknowledgements that Gods might not disdain. 

And yet no idle song can amply praise 

The deeds that come within thy daily round ; 

No studied words sufficiently upraise 

The virtues that within thy role abound. 

Of Aesculapius disciple strong 

Accept the spirit of this humble song. 

IRA M. DE LONG, B. A., M. A., A T A. 

Professor of Mathematics. 

Advance of sciences on fact depends; 
To build up something great the way is slow ; 
All tasks like thine a useful part bestow 
As work of Euclid other work befriends: 
For thou hast seen that Learning never ends 
No matter what the lengths our minds may go, 
Thy teaching seems at times both mean and low 
And yet to make the fuller man it tends. 
Show us that what now seems mere drudgery 

Is but the deepest, broadest, highest way. 
Ease loving minds from ignorance to free 
And tribute to the better self to pay. 
The way to learn thy truths is steep and long; 

Attainment is to the brave and to the strong. 


Professor of Law. 

What man has lived who worshipped not the strong? 
The hours grow into days, the days to years, 
A life is builded and a man appears, 
A man pre-eminent in any throng 
To guide the youth in thorny paths along: 
Respected Reed ! thy very virtue rears 
A shrine at which we worship; may our fears 
Of learning never melt through thee in song. 
To thee all paths are straight, for thou art wise, 
Thou hast seized chance and opportunity — 
Help us to do the like e'er prospect flies. 
Help us the good of patient work to see. 
To gather wisdom lies no easy way. 
Teach us to build with thee, from day to day. 


F. B. R. HELLEMS, B. A., Ph. D.. <i> B k. 

Dean College ol Liberal Arts; Professor of Latin. 

Some long to hear the world proclaim them great, 
And some theie are who long lor earthly power, 

1 hat hckle thing that changes in an hour. 
While some strive for a happy earthly state: 
Of all the things that make the soul elate 

1 hou hast the best, — of love the very flower; 

1 he love of all thy fellowmen thy dower, 
Which Fortune gave thee when thou wedded Fate. 
What more can mortal claim than fellows love, 

The blessings warm of each and every friend; 
What more can earth bequeath, or heav'n above 
Upon the favored or the chosen send? 
Thou, Hellems, hast the love of fellowmen. 

The greatest good within our mortal ken. 

Professor of Biology. 

Who learns of thee, Ramaley, learneth well; 
Thy methods are correct, thy precepts true, 
Thy grasp upon fair knowledge old and new 
Thou dost impart to those who with thee dwell, 
Striving to see the grace of science's spell: 
Minute details of science to construe 
And bring before the earnest student's view — 
Fresh beauties of the trees and flowered dell, 
Although a science is indeed an art 
Net many they who came beneath thy care 
With sturdy will and knowledge-seeking heart 
But come away with wisdom's gleanings rare. 
Teach us to share thy carefulness of mind, 
A^ see the truths to which we now are blind. 

CHAS. A. AYER, II H, Ph. D. 

Professor of Romance Languages. 

A store house for sweet thoughts must be thy brain, 

Or seeds of romance in thy pathway sown, 

Of southern minds, have come to be thine own 

Through study of the tongues of France and Spain; 

Infusing into others' minds a train 

Of thought like that of mystic Calderon, 

To watch the fruit that in those minds has grown 

Were work well done that merits every gain. 

Thou teachest well the music and the grace 

That e'er abides in tongues of southern clime; 

The tender passions of a southern race 

Are taught by thee through works of other time. 

Entrancing theme is thine, nor only theme, 

Thy teaching too, is worthy note, we deem. 


Professor of Greek. 

With mild suggestion of half hidden mirth 

Combined with giving out the best of lore 

That lingers in the musty classics store, 

Has brought thee followers of honest worth 

And liking for thy work has had its birth ; 

Thy illustrations of the days of yore 

Would make one hear the blue Aegean's roar 

And see departed scenes upon the earth 

In which we live with all that glamour past. 

Through such as thee, with full and fluent speech, 

The spirit of the ages dead shall last 

And every earnest scholar's heart shall reach. 

The value of thy work is understood 

By few, — by them 'tis reckoned boundless good.

"Dad is my favorite name, 

For that I am not much to blame; 

Always in the past,

Professor of Philosophy. 

Serene, 'mid classes' cares, 

He dreams and talks, and talking 
teaches truth. 
Yes, bold beliefs he holds, and boldly 
Retell his thought, in sooth. 



Professor of Economics and Sociology. 

When a silver-tongued orator, hot. 
Spouts all night a lot of his rot. 

Do I cock up my ear 

And believe all I hear? 
I should say, "Why, most certainly not." 

(On leave of absence, Second Semester.)

With deep intelligence, in range of view. 

To talk is my delight."

Cl)e baccalaureate ^ttoress 

In after-graduation days there are certain memories of the college years that 
stand out strong and clear, rugged and defiant mountain peaks boldly piercing the 
mists that slowly veil the landscape of the past. As the circles of time roll by, 
the thoughts of those who left the university with the class of 1907 must cling 
with increasing fondness to the memories which cluster themselves around the 
words of President Baker's benediction, pronounced on the afternoon of Sunday, 
June second, nineteen hundred seven near the close of his baccalaureate address : 
" I he world, life, the place in which you are, and the work you have to do are 
good; your surroundings are beautiful; your neighbors are worthy; humble life has 
passions, ambitions, and virtues deserving of the pen of genius; the common, the 
familiar, the things of today are full of interest; good is not alone of a past age 
or a coming century; here are the elements out of which poetry, success and 
happiness are wrought — opportunity to do your best and ally yourselves with all 
that is best everywhere." This was not the most beautiful passage in that address; 
it was probably not the most sublime; but it sticks longest in the mind. It is 
powerfully rugged and strong. It is characteristic of the man. The simple, quiet 
dignity cf the scene, the full-toned utterance of the speaker, the subdued atmos- 
phere of peace and reverence, and the pervading glow of youth and energy, have 
printed a picture on the film of the mind that will not fade for many a day. 

President Baker's subject, as announced, was "Epics in Prose." His theme 
was opportunity and its ethical aspects under modern conditions. He sounded 
the advance of the spirit of veracity and announced that everywhere Huxley's 
"enormous longing for the highest and best in all shapes" must become dominant. 
The nation has reached the age of maturity; the days of fancies are gone and 
those of reality are come. The demands of profess:onal and industrial life are 
exacting. "Modern life is a field for tests more severe, devotion more zealous, 
energy more complete, and deeds greater than were ever sung in heroic strains." 
The pride in doing things well puts gladness in the heart of life today. The 
demand for efficiency is growing year by year and happy is he who is weighed 
in the balances and not found wanting. The moral aspect of all this is not 
to be forgotten: character-making may still mean fighting. "An ethical code 
has not yet been wrought out for many changing social, commercial, and political 
conditions, and the times await epoch making leaders." 

Practical efficiency and well-earned character are the modern substitutes for 
the heoric ideals of an epic age. Such aims are worthy of our time. Those of 
us who find life, with ideals of th s sort, commonplace and uninteresting, may 
listen again to the most beautiful 1 nes of all that were spoken that day and take new 
meaning from their words: "I have seen, here, the hillsides painted with purple 
and red, or covered with dark green lighted here and there with crimson and 
yellow, and changing under deep shadows. In late autumn along the ravines I 
have seen the bare shrubs with the glory of old gold running along their tops, 
transmuted in winter into silver and replaced in spring with emerald. And on dark 
days deep blue has settled upon the mountain, while the summit was crowned with 
heavy clouds and mists, mysterious and solemn as on the heights where God gave 
laws to His people. And on some dome or crag I have felt the mind answer to 
the call of grandeur and beauty and grow into harmony with the scene." 

C. L. A. 


The soul of commencement is essentially one of sweetest melancholy and the 
pervading spirit permeating the speeches of students, alumni and faculty during the 
progress of the commencement banquet was primarily one of sad gratitude for the 
days past and wholesome optimism for the future, both of the individual and of 
the university. 

The twelfth annual alumni dinner was given in the Chatauqua dining room 
immediately following the exercises on Wednesday. There were congregated the 
faculty, which had guided the sons of Colorado through the four golden years 
of university life; there were the alumni, who had long since entered upon the 
world's work, and, fiinally, there were the most recent graduates, about to take up 
the careers for which Colorado had done her best to prepare them. 

Earnest L. Williams, LL. B., '02, was toastmaster of the occasion. O. E. 
Johnson, B. A., '82; H. L. Garwood, B. S., '00, and G. B. Drake, LL. B., '05, 
told of the glories of the past and the expectations of the future, of the infant in- 
stitution of yesterday and the virile university of today. 

Regent O. J. Pfeiffer gave utterance, in his usual hopeful and enthusiastic 
manner, to the favors which the state had conferred upon the university and what 
he hoped would come in the future, while President James H. Baker closed the 
toasts of the day on the subject, "The University." He spoke of the honor which 
had come to Colorado through her alumni, and in his stern, rugged manner outlined 
the probable future, when Colorado shall take her place among the first institu- 
tions of the land. 

And thus the commencement banquet of 1907 came to an end, a banquet at- 
tended by the largest body of Colorado alumni ever gathered together on a similar 
occasion and which breathed of lasting love and devotion to the Alma Mater. 


(Elass Whe 

Our Boulder, renowned as the 'Varsity's home, 
For thy mountains majestic, inspiring, sublime, 

For thy smiling blue skies in ethereal dome, 
For thy beauty unfading, thy generous clime, 
We praise thee. 

Dear old Main, whose dim halls we devotedly love, 

Every stone of whose building, tho' time-worn, is dear; 

From whose sweet mer'ried chapel, with gallery above, 
We depart not for aye without shedding a tear, 
We prize thee. 

For the ties which all hearts will so sacredly bind, 
Which e'en swiftly-flying time cannot wholly efface, 

For affections and mem'ries about thee entwined, 
That we ever shall keep in heart's closest embrace, 
We love thee. 

For the happier days we enjoyed in thy bounds, 
For the sorrowful days which clouds did immure, 

For the gladness wherewith thy old wall still resounds, 
For the spirit thou nourished to ever endure, 
We thank thee. 

University, school of the noblest and best, 

Whose fair name we shall cherish in honor forever, 

Whose achievements have brought thee renown in the past, 
Whose glorious future shall be our endeavor. 
We revere thee. 

For the leaders of wisdom whom thou didst bestow, 

Whose faithful devotion we ne'er can repay, 
Who led onward to hope from the deepest of woe. 

And guided us well in the pilgrims slow way, 
We thank thee. 

For all inspiration to deepening thought, 

For the bright hope which buoys yet drops down the plummet. 
For the lessons we learned, for true friendships wrought, 

For the visions beheld on life's mountain summit. 
We thank thee. 

For our sins of the past, which we deeply deplore, 

For our frailties, neglect, our irresolution, 
For all disappointment that wounded thee sore, 

Wilt thou mercifully pardon and grant absolution, 
We implore thee. 

Though we leave now thy halls, on the world coldly tossed, 
We again shall return to thee, sooner or later; 

And whatever our fate, or whatever the cost, 
We shall be ever loyal to the?. Alma Mater, 
We assure thee.

All things conspired to make the commencement play of the class of 1907 a 
success. The cast was superior, the play, "The Winter's Tale," was one to which 
the talent of the actors was well adapted, while the night, calm and serene, in 
keeping with the spirit of the time, brought out a crowd which completely filled the 
thousand seats which had been provided for the occasion, to the east of old Main. 
There has been much written of the ideal spot which nature has supplied to 
Colorado whereon the annual play is presented, but there is perhaps no drama which 
could have gained more by being presented in such a place, without the shifting 
scenery of the metropolitan theater than "The Winter's Tale." Shakespeare is 
if anything, natural, and the great bowed cottonwoods, the soft grass beneath and 
the vast vault of the heavens above presented an ideal setting for the play. 

"The Winter's Tale" is primarily a play wherein the most important roles 
fall to the lot of women and the parts were capably handled by those who were 
chosen to take them. Miss Ann Bowler did well, exceedingly well as Hermione 
and portrayed in a manner hardly to be expected of a student actor the strength 
of virtue, the ideal temperament and the divine patience of the character. Mr. 
Charles Avery as Leontes sustained well the role. His rendition of the difficult 
passages which abound throughout the play was of merit. With nearly 800 lines 
to memorize and master, lines which necessitated superb presentation not to appear 
ridiculous. Mr. Avery handled the role in a most creditable manner. 

Nor even in such a short review as this, would it be just to pass over the work 
of Mr. Harry Pray, as the Clown, without a word of deserved praise. The role 
was one which seemed to be peculiarly suited to him and he entered into the spirit 
of the part in a manner which made his work second to none. 


It would be vain in the space allotted here to attempt to speak individually of 
the varied parts. Miss Eva Rewalt as Perdita, Miss Alice Phelps as Paulina and 
Mr. Harry Zimmerhackel as Autolycus were worthy of more than passing men- 
tion. On the whole, the presentation of "The Winter's Tale" by the Class of I 907 
lived well up to the standards of Colorado's annual class plays of former years. 
Under Mr. Cleaves the Seniors worked earnestly to offer a creditable production 
of a difficult play and all is written when it is said that they succeeded.

Who could so charmingly express the feelings of the alumnus and suggest the 
heart throbbings and deep sense of gladness, called forth by a thousand happy recol- 
lections of college days, tinged with the one touch of sadness, at the thought that they 
will never return, which fills his breast upon his return to his alma mater, as Oliver 
Wendell Holmes in the few stanzas that follow? 

What miles we've traveled since we shook the dew-drops from our shoes; 
We gathered on this classic green, so famed for heavy dues! 
How many boys have joined the game, how many slipped away. 
Since we've been running up and down, and having out our play! 

One boy at work with book and brief, and one with gown and band. 
One sailing vessels on the pool, one digging in the sand. 
One flying paper kites on change, one planting little pills — 
The seeds of certain annual flowers well known as little bills. 

But fairer sights have met our eyes, and broader lights have shone, 
Since others lit their midnight lamps where once we trimmed our own ; 
A thousand trains that flap the sky with flags of rushing fire, 
And, throbbing in the Thunderer's hand, Thought's million-chorded lyre. 

We've seen the little tricks of life, its varnish and veneer, 

It's straw-fronts of character flake off and disappear; 

And met with many a "perfect brick" beneath a rimless "tile." 

We've learned that oft the brownest hands will heap the biggest pile, 

What dreams we've had of deathless name, as scholars, statesmen, bards. 
While Fame, the lady with the trump, held up her picture cards! 
Till, having nearly played our game, she gayly whispered, "Ah! 
I said you should be something grand — you'll soon be grandpapa." 

Well, well, the old have had their day, the young must take their turn ; 
There's something always to forget, and something still to learn; 
But how to tell what's old or young, the tap-root from the sprigs. 
Since Florida revealed her fount to Ponce de Leon Twiggs? 

The wisest was a Freshman once, just freed from bar and bolt. 
Don't be too savage with the boys — the Primer does not say 
As noisy as a kettle-drum, as leggy as a colt; 
The kitten ought to go to church because "the cat doth prey." 

Farewell ! Yet let one echo rise to shake our ancient hall ; 
God save the Queen — whose throne is here — the Mother of us all! 
Till dawns the great commencement day on every shore and sea, 
And "Expectantur" all mankind, to take their last Degree!

Unusual importance attached itself to the Commencement Game of 1907, 
being as it was, the deciding factor of the championship of college baseball in the 
Rocky Mountain region. The time was propitious for the drawing out of all that 
was best in the Colorado team. It was the last game of the year for the team, 
it was the final contest for many of the men, and upon the outcome depended the 
champ:onship. The Tigers from Colorado College came to Boulder in prime 
condition and determined to put up the game of their lives. The day was ideal for 
the contest, warm but not sultry, and the crowd was typical of commencement. 

The game was fast and close and up until the eighth inning the score stood 
4 — 4. Against superior team work and individual playing the Tigers were fight- 
ing desperately. During Colorado's half of the eighth Captain Trudgian brought 
in the timely run of the game, making the score 5 — 4, where it remained at the 
end of the contest. 

The team of the Silver and Gold walked off the field, champions of the West, 
without having lost an intercollegiate contest. The contest was the second of the 
annual class day games, Colorado having won both and the precedent has been es- 
tablished so that future teams will be content with nothing less than victory on class 
day, regardless of what the season has been theretofore. 


Since the year 1882, when the seal of the University of Colorado was first 
formally affixed to a diploma entitling the holder to stand on even footing with 
the college trained men and women of the country, nearly one thousand degrees 
have been conferred by the institution. The thousand men and women who re- 
ceived them have entered the various fields of activity for which their training 
fitted them, and most of them have lived and prospered. The graduates of I 882 
are not yet old men and their years of usefulness to the University and the State 
are not over. The ranks of loyal alumni are swelled each year by a constantly 
increasing number of new graduates who carry into their work and into their com- 
munities the spirit of aggressive and optimistic endeavor which marks them as 
the finished product of the great University mill. 

The University is the home of those who would carry a fixed purpose to a suc- 
cessful conclusion. The man who has lived with a fixed purpose and who has em- 
ployed in its development natural resources, strengthened and enlarged by univer- 
sity training, has lived a useful and honorable life, and has justified, before the 
world, the existence of his alma mater and her claim upon the commonwealth. 

Ninety-seven per cent, of the living graduates of the College of Engineering 
are now actively engaged in professional work along engineering lines. Those 
upon whom the University has conferred the degree of Doctor of Medicine have 
almost without exception devoted themselves to the practice of their profession and 
achieved honorable success. The graduates of the School of Law have exemplified 
the value of their university career before the highest tribunals of justice. The 
College of Liberal Arts has sent forth men and women who serve the broader 
interests of humanity in all their varied callings. 

"The golden haze of student days" does not lift forever when students become 
alumni and leave the walls of the university. The call to return rings in our ears 
at each commencement time and fortunate we may consider ourselves if we can obey 
the summons and return to the scenes of student activity for a brief season. The 
signs of progress which greet us on our return are of vital interest to all of us and 
leave us more proud to be enrolled in the legion alumni.

Prominent Alumni 


After receiving his B. A. and B. S. degrees at 
the University of Colorado, Mr. Giffin studied at 
Columbia University, where he received the degree 
of M. A. After this extensive education he de- 
voted himself to his chosen profession of electrical 
engineering. He spent some time with the General 
Electric Company at Schenectady, N. Y., and then 
accepted a position as head of the statistical depart- 
ment of N. E. Baker & Company, New York City. 
Since then, however, he has terminated this connec- 
tion, and is now established as Research Engineer 
at 27 Williams Street, New York City. Mr. Giffin 
has invented several mechanical appliances, notably 
a smoke consumer, which has proven very successful. 

A. J. FYNN. 

Born in New York state, just before the out- 
break of the Civil War. His father was killed in 
the war, and his early educational advantages were 
few and unsatisfactory. He graduated from Tuft 
College in 1 884, and received an A. M. degree 
from the same institution in 1 889. He received his 
doctor's degree at the University of Colorado in 
I 899, and has been principal in various high schools 
of the State. He is now principal of the Longfel- 
low school, and in addition to this work he has 
taken classes in ethnology in Denver University. 
Dr. Flynn has done a great deal of lecture work, 
is an authority on ethnological subjects, and has 
made a special study of the American Indian of the 

Southwest. He was a member of the Hewitt expedition which explored the 
Verde, and has written "The American Indian as a Product of Environment.' 



Born in Bennington, N. Y., in 1858. He 
graduated from Hamilton College in 1881, from 
the Union Theological Seminary, New York City, 
in 1885, and was granted the Master's degree by 
the University of Colorado in I 889. He became 
pastor of Cazenovia Presbyterian church in 1 890, 
and in addition to his pastoral work, is serving as a 
member of the faculty of Cazenovia Seminary, 
where he occupies the chair of Ancient History. 
He is author of "The Twelve Apostles of the 
Church of Cazenovia" and "The Religious Denom- 
inations of Madison County." 


Born in 1876 in Otero County, Colorado. 
Educated in the public schools of Pueblo. Attend- 
ed Franklin and Marshall College one year, and 
University of Colorado three years, graduating with 
degree of B. Ph. in I 899. Won state oratorical 
contest in 1 898. Took part in first three class 
plays ever given on the University campus, '97, '98 
and '99. Member Phi Kappa Sigma Fraternity. 
Taught in Pueblo High School. 1899-1902; prin- 
cipal Pueblo High School, 1903-1905; superin- 
tendent Golden public schols, 1 906 — . Mr. 
Downen is one of the leading educators in the State 
of Colorado, and has been very successful in his 
chosen work. 


Graduated from the Liberal Arts Department 
of the University of Colorado in 1 89 1 , and after- 
wards attended McCormick Theological Seminary, 
where he graduated in I 894, the honor man of his 
class. He then spent a year of post-graduate work 
in Jena University, Germany. When he returned 
he took up work in Idaho Springs, Colorado, as 
pastor of the Presbyterian church. After further 
successful pastoral work in Canon City, he was 
called to Muncie, Ind., and there took charge of 
the third largest church of that denomination in the 
State of Indiana. In the spring of 1907 he was 
again called to broader fields, anct is at present in 
charge of the Central Presbyterian church of St. 
Paul, one of the best-known churches in the North 

west. Rev. Wilson preaches to the largest congregation in St. Paul, in a magnificent 
building situated near the heart of the city. 



Born in Erie, Pa., in 1861. Graduated from 
Trinity College in 1 889, and received the degree 
of M. A. in 1893. He took the theological course 
in the General Theological Seminary of the Protest- 
ant Episcopal church, and was graduated in 1891, 
receiving the degree of B. D. in 1 893. He be- 
came rector of St. John's church, Boulder, in 1891 , 
and while in this city studied for the degree of Ph. 
D. in the University of Colorado. He received the 
degree in 1895, presenting as his thesis, "The 
Sources of Agnosticism." Since 1896 Dr. Kramer 
has been rector of All Saint's church, Denver, and 
examining chaplain to the Bishop of Colorado. His 
published works include: "De Profundis," 1894; 

"The Sources of Agnosticism," 1896; "The Supremacy of the Bible," 1907; and 
numerous articles in theological periodicals. 


Born in Lincoln, Neb., June 10, 1873. \fyhen 
twenty-one years of age, he removed to Colorado, 
and in 1 899 entered the University of Colorado 
Law School, and graduated with the degree of LL. 
B. in 1902. Mr. Laton has been engaged in the 
practice of law since his graduation at Denver, 
where, in 1 906, he was elected on the Republican 
ticket as a member of the State House of Repre- 
sentatives. In the legislature he has worked untir- 
ingly for the interests of his alma mater, and was 
mainly instrumental in passing the bill providing for 
the State Geological Survey, under the personal di- 
rection of Professor George. Mr. Laton is now 
president of the Denver Alumni of the University 
of Colorado.

"Yes, Dad, I'd like to go to the State University, but I want to take 
astronomy. I'm going to D. U. Why don't they teach astronomy at Boulder?" 

'They used to, my son, but the Regents made them cut it out the year I 
was a freshman. Up to that time astronomy was more popular than German is 
now. You see that was in the old days before the elective system had been dis- 
covered and astronomy was one of the required subjects. The freshman studied the 
stars, not from a distance through one of Sam Weller's 'double million compound 
magnifying glasses,' but he went right up among them and shook hands with the 
man in the moon on the way. The faculty couldn't conduct the course satisfac- 
torily so the sophomores were expected to see to it that it was given each year. The 
freshmen all liked the course, too, and would rather miss college algebra. If the 
freshman was right bright, he would hustle out of bed and right out onto the 
campus without waiting to change his clothes. ? — -No, no, son, the girls weren't 
required to take the course; just the boys. I had forgotten that girls used to go 
to college. Thus attired for his voyage of the ether, reclining peacefully on the 
downy couch provided by his teachers, he would listen calmly to the solemn tones 
of 'Doc' Gregerson, good old 'Greg,' as he slowly chanted 'one — two — three.' 
Then Mr. Freshman would begin his first tour of the heavens. While he was 
gone 'Shorty' Cunningham would bum a paper from 'Peg' Hay, tobacco from 
'Gee Spit' Fowler and a match from Charley Lory. Meanwhile the freshman 
would visit Jupiter, examine the settings of the rings of Saturn, and finally becoming 
tired of the scenery would sit down and watch the gondolas glide silently over the 
silver surface of the canals of Mars. Here he was apt to sit in a reverie hours long. 
If he didn't miss the blanket when he lit, off he would go on another tour of inter 
stellar space. Finally Mackie's turn came. He met Ikey Cassel carrying suit 
cases for the Kappa girls of the University of Neptune. It seemed so much like 
home to Ike that he wanted to stay, and so sold his return ticket to Mackie, who 
didn't like it up there. They weren't expecting Mackie back so soon, so nobody 
but 'Tubby' Turman and Harvey Carr had hold of the blanket. This made him 
so mad that he wouldn't stay at the Dorm any more. Willie-be-good Hatch went 
and told Benny Fitz, and he told 'Doc' Palmer. This made him mad because 
Mackie's stories had been such a help to the 'George Washington Club.' To 
make matters worse, 'Major' Fulton told Prexy that they didn't give the course 
any more at West Point anyway. So they cut it out. Georgenberger and 'Oom 
Paul' Clark felt so bad about this that they went right down and told Frank 
Jordinelh. Now, my son, if you want to know any more about this, you will 
have to ask Tom Jackson or 'Parson' Haskins, they were there longer than I was. 
I saw 'Hode' Underwood, Jr., to-day. He says his dad thinks Prexy wants to 
put in the course again, but Chancellor Klemme won't let him." 



Not so long ago but what the participants still consider themselves as juveniles 
in the ranks of U. of C. Alumni, a crowd of convivial spirits, entirely of the femine 
gender, started out to swipe grapes and returned with — goats, valuable Angoras at 

It was not their fault, but that of Providence, that returning from Mapleton 
Hill left stripped of all its grapes, they passed a lot adjoining the house of a promi- 
nent Boulder citizen and at that moment containing two highly respectable but 
irresistable goats. What more evident than that they were intended by a beneficent 
power to abandon the grapes, seize the goats, and steal up University Hill back 
way? And what could be wittier than to tie one angry goat to the door of a certain 
frat house holding initiation within, and to vanish with the other Angora (with his 
angry passions rising), and tie him likewise to a second frat house wrapped in 

Thus, the Time, the Place, the Girls and the Goats. Now for the Perform- 

Frat House No. 1 was notified by the conspirators over the 'phone in an 
indignant voice "that this was Mrs. Prominent Citizen and would they kindly return 
her goat and not be so funny." They vowed they had no goat, but found on in- 
vestigation they had. A neophyte of that evening said: "Gee! was that the goat — 
a real one?" and was despatched straightway to return it. Thus endeth the ad- 
ventures of the first goat. 

Goat No. 2 had more stirring times. The feminine causes of his plight had 
all gone to bed, and he was left to his fate and the stilly night. It was too much 
for a goat to endure and he protested in the fashion of his kind and ancestry, rousing 
the sleeping Greeks to action and to subterfuge. With a shout as of chasing an 
elusive goat across the campus they seemed to vanish and the culprits next door woke, 
smiled a smile of bliss and satisfaction and dropped off again, only to be aroused by 
the utmost noise and commotion in their own basement. Descending in night array 
they beheld a ferocious goat ramming the trunks and boxes, with a terrified cook and 
maid in the immediate back ground. The girls screamed and one brave soul got the 
ironing-board and propelled the unwilling goat from the window where he was 
rescued by the wily men who had put him there, and taken to another cellar belong- 
ing to a sorority in which he had a similar brief but eventful career. But while 
there the cruel men into whose hands he had fallen delivered the following telegrams 
to his original feminine captors: 
"Bulletin No. I, 1 a. m. : 

"Goat well barricaded. No chance of reinforcements. Advices report goat 
doing well. Gamma Delta reports ammunition and stores almost exhaused owing 
to unforeseen contingencies of siege. Central telephone reports all communication 
cut off." 

"Bulletin No. 2, 2 a. m. : 

"Goat has finished 16 cans and a bustle. Badly disfigured, but still in the 
ring. Goat has blown charge on his horns and proceeds to dance a can-can, effects 
of meal. Some things approach in white, but goat quickly vanquishes enemy." 


"Bulletin No. 3, 5 a. m. : 

"Regret to report large loss of life; 12,639 fleas died on goat's back. Gamma 
Delta ammunition exhausted. Gamma Delta have 8 gallons water and 2 loaves 
bread. Too much braid — will exchange for water." 
"Bulletin No. 4, 10 a. m. : 

"Goat victorious. Gamma Delta in full flight. All water exhausted." 
And thus endeth the escapade. All except poor goat No. 2, who next day 
was dressed in pajamas, cap, etc., and led through town by those girls and boys who 
were indebted to him for one of the happiest pranks of their college days, and restored 
to his happy vacant lot from whence he nevermore desired to be torn. 

L. T. C, '06. 


In a burst of penitence little Freddie Hellems was telling his mother what a 
wicked boy he had been. 

"The other day mamma," he said, "I found the church door unlocked and I 
went inside. There wasn't anybody there, and I — " 

"You didn't take anything away, did you. Son?" she asked. 

"Worse than that, I — " 

"Did you mutilate the hymn books or play any tricks of that kind?" 

"O, lots worse than that, mamma," sobbed Freddie. "I went and sat down 
in the amen corner and said 'darn it.' 

The above is from a diary kept by Freddie's mother. 


During the year of 1 905 the scheme of the President for beautifying the 
campus, even at the expense of moving some of the fine trees, caused a great deal of 
comment and particularly when several fine trees near the main building were moved. 
On Arbor Day the seniors were engaged in planting their tree and shortly after the 
conclusion of the ceremony President Baker came to inspect the work of the class of 
1905. Fie had been there for a few minutes when suddenly some one called from 
the Hale Building: "I'll bet he moves it by morning." Somewhat embarrassed 
President Baker departed and on the next Monday he mentioned, in Chapel, the 
fact that he would offer a liberal reward for information leading to the identity of 
the practical "joker." Our correspondent has been on the trail for two years and 
more, and just at the time of our going to press he has learned that it was a senior 
law student, F-a-n-i J. K-a-s. 


The annual holiday banquet of the U. of C. alumni was held on January 3rd 
at the Albany Hotel, under the auspices of the Denver Alumni Association. This 
affair is coming to be one of the most important features of the University calendar, 
and it is pleasant to note the increasing number of graduates attending this banquet 
each year. On account of the difficulty which some of the alumni have in reaching 
Boulder during commencement week, the Denver banquet held during the holidays 
affords an execellent opportunity for graduates who happen to be in Denver in at- 
tendance upon the State Teachers' Association meetings to get in touch with the 
University. This year the banquet was favored with the presence of President 
W. O. Thompson, of Ohio University, who made the principal address; others 
who responded to toasts were President Baker, Daisy D. Metzler of the class 
of '07, Prof. Frank Thompson of the Department of Education, Earnest Morris 
of the class of '07, and Omar E. Garwood of the class of '01. 

Officers of the Denver Alumni Association were elected, Jessie J. Laton of 
the class of '03 being chosen president.

borty years ago the college graduate was a marked man; he was apart 
from the mass; if not thrust upon him, honors were within easy reach. Today things 
are different; the greatly increased numbers of colleges each year sends out thou- 
sands of men and more thousands of women ; with the breaking up of the old 
curriculum the free masonry of learning ceased; the diploma no longer admits to 
a privileged class; the young Bachelor of Arts is a single being who must answer 
the question, "What can you do?" College training is replaced or supplemented 
more and more by technical training. While the majority of eager workers will 
look to schools of law, of medicine and of engineering, the welfare of the nation 
requires that there shall always be some who are interested in the higher forms of 
culture and in knowledge for its own sake. To meet the wants of this important 
class Graduate Schools are rising in all universities of note. 

I he Graduate School is the training place for special investigation in science, 
in philology, in literature, in history, in sociology. From the Graduate School pro- 
fessors are selected for chairs in colleges and universities. The Graduate School 
in its coordination with the Faculty of Law is preeminently the place of training for 
the public service, for a career in journalism or in politics. The call in all higher 
intellectual fields is for a preparation considerably more advanced than the college 

I he University of Colorado through its Graduate School offers instruction in 
fifteen departments. 

I he opportunities in science are excellent. There is no better field for the 
study of Geology than the plains, canons, mesas, foot-hills, oil fields, mines and 
mountains near Boulder. The departments of Zoology and Botany have rare ad- 
vantages in the field, and the museum has been enriched by many collections made 
by Dr. Ramaley in the far East. The department of Chemistry has a new build- 
ing in construction which will increase its facilities three fold. The department of 
Physics offers very important opportunities for the study of radio-activity. These 
courses in pure science are supplemented by many lines of instruction given by the 
able Faculty of Applied Science. 

From the first the institution has been strong in philosophy, classic and modern 
literature; recently the departments of sociology, history and education have been 
greatly developed. 

The University Library is the laboratory for these departments; the stock of 
books is new, and the reading room is one of the best in the world. 

Graduate instruction is conducted partly by recitations and lectures, partly 
by research in the library; and in science, largely by work in the laboratories and 
in the field. Every help is offered consistent with development of originality and 
strong scholarship. Red tape is reduced to a minimum; the aim of the manage- 
ment is to help mature students to realize their ideals in education and in life. 

Graduate students who meet the requirements for higher degrees, receive personal 
sympathy in arranging their work, and aid toward securing a start in their chosen 

One year ol residence at Boulder is required for the Master's degree; the 
degree of Doctor of Philosophy is given after three years of residence — one of 
which must be at this University. The degree of Master of Science and Engineer 
are given lor advanced studies in Applied Science.

Liberal Arts 




The University of Colorado was opened in September, 1877, with two de- 
partments, Preparatory and College. It was a rather humble beginning; "Old 
Main" was the solitary hall of learn ng, and the first enrollment showed two in- 
structors and forty-four students. 

Since that time, however, the University has grown rapidly to its present en- 
rollment and although a Medical School was opened in I 883, a Law School in 
1892, a College of Engineering in 1893, and a College of Commerce in 1906, 
the Liberal Arts Department has always maintained its position as the most im- 
portant department of the University, in influence as well as in numbers. 

In 1892, when President Baker assumed the direction of the institution, the 
College of Liberal Arts comprised seventy-seven students. Today, with an enroll- 
ment of some five or six hundred, we look askance at the small classes that en- 
tered during the eighties and early nineties, but it must be remembered that numbers 
are not everything, and it was the pride of those ancient days that the professors 
taught for the love of their work, and the students learned eagerly from a no 
smaller love of learning. 

The classes were small, the spirit was mighty and the ideals and standards 
of those early days are well attested by the surprising proportion of old Alumni 
who have since attained a fame that has redounded credit to themselves »nd their 
Alma Mater. 

The "College" has since been denominated a "College of Liberal Arts," not 
only to distinguish it from the "College of Engineering," but also to more nearly 
express its real significance. The wide scope of studies, the great latitude given the 
student in choosing his work, both make sure the claim that it is in very truth a 
"College of Liberal Arts." 

Here the lawyer and doctor obtain that general knowledge and training so 
necessary to the professional man ; here also the teacher is offered a pedagogical 
course, higher in its ultimate aim than the conventional normal course, and here 
the engineer acquires a breadth of view that serves to immeasurably increase his 
efficiency in his chosen profession. Thus does the Liberal Arts Department act 
as an ally to the other departments of the University, although this is not its real 

The Liberal Arts Department performs a mission that cannot be delegated 
to any other school of the University, a mission which argues its undeniable right to 
existence aside from any connection it may have with professional schools. Its 
mission is not primarily to fit a man or woman for a narrow professional life, but 
the stimulation of his efforts to the search of Truth and Beauty for their own sakes. 
Art, Literature and Science constitute the college student's work and it is through 
their acquaintance, that he is enabled to cast aside all that is sordid and mean in this 
world and confine his attention and derive his pleasures from the real enjoyment 
of life. 


Being a unique history chronicling no events and not mentioning the names of famous 

Horv quickly have the four Vears passed 
That Were alloied to us here. 
Beloved are all familiar scenes; 
Beloved, the friends we've held so dear. 
Yet these, all these, must we give up. 
Our pleasures respite is complete — 
Harsh struggles of the world await 
And in the fight must We compete. 

What a flood of disparate thought comes with meditation on a college life, 
slowly, but too truly, nearing its completion! Where is the Senior who, un- 
abashed, will stand forth before the admiring rabble, and proclaim himself un- 
changed by the process that now stamps him a finished product? Truly, indeed, 
a history of any Senior Class, in speaking of these changes, could be made serious 
or humorous, depending entirely on what set of individuals was receiving attention, 
or what phase of the so-called "student activities" was being elucidated. Too soon, 
however, will we be confronted with what is really serious; let us not take ourselves 
too seriously now — at least for a little while. 

"I am going to college," says the High School Senior. "I am going to be 
an engineer." What a magic ring to the words "going to college," and yet what 
vague ideas of reality do they convey! The "promised land" is pictured with vivid 
imagination, a world where dull care is imprisoned and shackeled by orders of the 
social queen who reigns supreme. True it is, there are a few books, and a lesson 
or two to prepare, but as for real knowledge, there is no more — the present stock 
represents "ne plus ultra." And then the advent of the great mind among the 
infants; the sad realization that his own coming was not heralded, that no one 
seemed to be waiting for him, that there was real work to do and real energy was 
necessary to accomplish results — these facts early become factors in the evolution of 
our erstwhile High School Senior. 

But everyone's experience is not the same; there are many variations from the 
type. Some have become so thoroughly inoculated with self-worth and narrowness 
that they are entirely immune to the influence of helpful thought evolution. They 
remain assertive, ignorant and happy — all rare and precious qualities! (An im- 
prudent history would here chronicle events and the manoeuvers of rash actors who 
still display these aforesaid characteristics, but this one is unique!) 

Others who have varied from the type are those displaying mushroom tendencies 
— they have sprung up to great heights in a wonderfully short time. Their dream 
is realized, success has caught them full in the face, and although slightly disfigured, 
they breathe the universal "I told you so!" Certainly the University was waiting 


tor them, the smart set needed a leader (for even "college widows" die), and they, 
with wonderful discerning faculties, took up the task, and with a martyr's resigna- 
tion condescended to hll a long-felt need! (Right here an ordinary history would 
narrate the careers of these individuals and emboss their names on the roll of honor, 
but this one won't!) 

1 hen there are those who have been successful in student politics, who have 
been in the public eye, either through luck, or through real work and ability. What 
shall we say of them? Are they truly successful, and by what standard is success 
measured? Perhaps they are popular because they have done nothing to make 
enemies; or, they are unpopular in proportion to that number of students, the grain 
ol whose intellectual or social ideals they have rubbed the wrong way. So what is 
the use of naming them since no two persons could agree on an acceptable list! 

And now we have seen the variations, what is to be told concerning the type — 
that vast army of John Does who, unknown and unknowing, go through the four 
years minding their own affairs, studying and thinking. Have they any virtues, are 
they popular, have they that indefinite something called the "right spirit?" Who 
knows? The variations judge them, and the variations are variable! 

Our own class is composed of all of these categories of individuals that have 
been enumerated. So, too, is every class. Perhaps, however, we display some 
abnormal tendencies, since our's was the first class not hazed on entering the Uni- 
versity. We have members who have been successful in debate, oratory and ath- 
letics. We established the Sophomore German, we founded the famous Junior 
Week with its events that already have become tradition. We engineered the first 
flag rush for the Sophomores and Freshmen. These are some of our acts of com- 
mission ; our acts of omission will be left for other historians. 

What a peculiar history, this! It mentions no names, it relates the achieve- 
ments of no particular individuals. Yet why should it? Have our efforts been satis- 
factory as a class; as individuals? Surely it is not for us to judge, not for us to 
proclaim, with brazen effrontery and a woeful lack of modesty. Then, too, the 
yard stick of our ideals of success might fall far short when measuring without the 
confines of our narrow four-year cycle. Whatever there has been of artificially and 
affectation here will bear its bitter fruit only too soon. Whatever beneficial influence 
or opportunity has been passed lightly without care or thought, will be evidenced by 
much care and thought at an early date, in just compensation. But let us hope 
that the majority has been bettered ; that the Class of 1 908, at graduation, will not 
write "finis" to its small chapter in the history of "Sincere Endeavor." How 
pleasant is the thought that future, noble efforts of its members will reflect the 
cherished love inculcated by memory of happy, profitable days spent here at the 
U. of C. 

So endeth the simple history of that class, now Seniors in the academic world, 
but really mere Freshmen, soon to be hazed and tossed in the uncertain blanket of 
experience. H. W.

And never gives an answer wrong.

From the Yearly Regent's Statement. 

The Denver Republican of June 6, 1921, contained an able article by 
Editor-in-Chief J. C. Vivian on the reunion of the Liberal Arts Class of 1909 at 
the University of Colorado. (The Regents immediately ordered 10,000 addi- 
tional copies of said issue for distribution). The article in full follows: 

" I he magnificent Mackay Auditorium of the University of Colorado was 
yesterday the scene of a memorable gathering. Its noble walls echoed to the 
speeches, songs and jests of a group of many of the most influential and intelligent 
citizens of our glorious country. The Class of 1 909 was together once more. 

"I arrived somewhat late, but in lime to hear the last of the Rev. Albert T. 
Orahood's voluntary prayer of thanksgiving. United States Senator Barrett was 
presiding, and seized the opportunity to make some remarks upon the tariff. He 
was interrupted by cries for Maud Young, whose books and poems have been the 
sensation of two hemispheres. I was unable to secure for publication the verses she 
read, but their effect was none the less great. 

"We were all delighted to hear that Elsie Sullivan is the dignified head of 
a Young Ladies' Seminary, in which Miss Chapman is Professor of Sanscript, Miss 
McKenzie professor of Romance Languages, Miss Maeder professor of Greek and 
Latin and Miss Ellwell professor of Philosophy. 

" Thomas Morrow, after returning to Cincinnati's fine suburbs, rose rapidly 
before the bar and is now political boss of that great city. 

"Ed. Anderson, having bought up practically the whole of the Western 
League, has been for some time fighting the big leagues with marked success. 

"Fannie Waltemeyer's name was received with the enthusiasm aroused by her 
recent tremendous successes in grand opera at home and abroad. 

"Russll Nichols has perfected a new portable double chair, designed for use 
in the halls of co-educational institutions. 

"Phil. Worcester, as Assistant State Geologist, while making excavations 
throughout the campus came upon sixteen well-preserved specimens of fountain pens 
of the antiquated style of ten years ago, one bottle of suspicious shape, and several 
hats sacrificed to Boulder's famous wind. 

"Armour and Lichty are engaged in selling merchandise in the streets of 
Ni Wot. Carl holds the audience by songs and graceful dances, while Roy tells 
the admiring farmers that his hole-proof pants are guaranteed to last longer than 
one of Prexy's speeches. 

"Believing that silence is golden, a number of young ladies have formed an 


association lor the cultivation of a quiet and intellectual manner. Several names 
on the membership list are familiar: E. M. Allison, Clara Bancroft, Helen 
Roberts, Louise Scott, Vara Shaver, Louise Tourtelotte, Alice 1 aylor, Emma 
Ericson and Lola Hobson. 

"Cheer after cheer broke forth when we heard that the Department of Phil- 
osophy was recently strengthened by the appointment of Ray Barr as second 
assistant. His lectures on Epistemology are attended by as great a throng of 
students as turn out to see him coach Colorado's champion football teams. 

"Word comes from Miss Culver's New York Art Studio that Kathryn James 
has just completed a painting, alive with tender feeling, named 'College Days.' 

"Meg Whitley has proven a most dignified and strict Dean of Women at 
Westminister College. 

"After performing the duties of treasurer to some sixteen different organiza- 
tions in the space of nine months, Grace Frawley secured an excellent position as 
Parisian millinery purchaser for Daniels & Fisher. 

"Science is richer through the efforts of Roy Butters, who has succeeded in 
elaborating a theory of the true shape of the earth. 

"Frankenberg and Davis are touring the country as monologists and readers. 
1 he former forces laughter to hold his sides, whereupon the latter bids his audience 
get its tears ready. 

"It is rumored that Edith Allen and Nina Gratz are abroad teaching French 
and German. 

"Testimonials are profuse from neighboring farmers concerning the excellencies 
of the lightning rod sold them by Paul Carmichael as well as the business-like and 
admirable qualities of that esteemed gentleman. 

"Mention was next made of the last senatorial campaign, in which Broome 
and Eglee made a most interesting and exciting race, filled with much stump oratory 
and mutual challenges, the result of which had been only the loss of the coveted prize 
to a third candidate. 

"Vague reports have come from time to time of the marvelous achievements of 
Mildred McNutt, Helen DesBrisay, {Catherine Dier and Mary Dutton in a musical 
act on the Orpheum Circuit. The audience shared the hope of the speaker that 
this performance would soon appear in Denver. 

"Winogene Nelson is experimenting on a new method of teaching arithmetic 
in the grade schools of Durango. 

"A considerable fortune has been realized by Donald Mossman on his recent 
book entitled 'How to Convince a Dean of Engineering That It Is the Height of 
Wisdom To Transfer To the College of Liberal Arts.' 

"Zella Curtin and Davena Houston report encouraging progress on their in- 
vestigation of the Homeric Question. 

"Rose Raabe and Ellen Jackson are the joint authors of a scholarly work 
dedicated to Dean Hellems on Archaeological and Orthographical Idiosyncratic 
Hallucinations in the light of Modern Excavations at Pompeulaneum. 

" I he finish of this recital awoke such a storm of handclapping, shouts and 
cheers that Klemme, thinking a student rally was in progress, hasted to the building 
with the expectation of being called upon for a speech. 

'What about Rosina Vaughn?' asked a voice, when quiet was once more 
restored. 'Successor to Mrs. Fealy as head of the Broadway School of Acting,' 
volunteered someone. 

"It was moved and seconded that the Class of 1909 erect a memorial to Dr. 
Phillips inscribed with the now formidable list of Trust Conferences attended by 
him, but debate among the many politicians present grew so acrimonious that Pres- 
ident Baker appeared, eye-glasses in hand, to say with ominous movements of the 
head: 'Please adjourn this meeting immediately.' 

"Nothing remained but to comply. We 'observed the usual order in passing,' 
singing 'Glory, Glory, Colorado.'

As to stimulate her psyche 

For what else could you care?

®Ij? (gnlton K$? nf f oittlj 

Rejoice, my heart, for thou art young; 
There rings the bell to deep loved hall, 
Towering with thoughts ennobled wall; 
'Tis ours, the golden age of youth. 

The world lies ready, ask, 'tis thine; 
Let time reverse to noble past, 
Let science beckon on full fast; 
It is the golden age of youth. 

The chapel peals the day's quick end; 
Haste now to field of friendly strife, 
Be glad for limbs in beauty rife; 
What lacks the golden age of youth? 

Here sit we trembling for our time, 
Ah! hear in flowing accents bold, 
Oration like to that of old; 
Rejoice, O golden age of youth ! 

As men we seek for other men; 
In circle dear by friendship's tie, 
Our love for them shall never die; 
Change not, O golden age of youth. 

The bright throng lightly gathers in; 
And music calls to quick tuned feet. 
Stay, happy night, be not so fleet ; 
Laugh on, O golden age of youth. 

A gracious voice soft speaks thy name; 
Give her whatever most you prize, 
Be worthy of those tender eyes; 
'Tis yours, the golden age of youth.

Monday, Sept. 9. 
School again. Most of our class are back and I guess we're all mighty glad 
to be back. Some few have come up missing, but they can't stand it very long; 
they'll have to come back; they'll simply have to be here with the rest of us or life 
will be unbearable. Somehow no other class is just like '10. A few of the old 
crowd think they want to try their luck elsewhere. They'll get pretty sick of it 
and will wish themselves back before the week is out. 

Saturday, Sept. 2 1 . 

We played baseball with the Freshies today. A pretty time of year to be 
playing baseball. But we did it more to show the Freshies that we are here and 
alive, than anything else. I guess they appreciated the fact after we got through with 
them, for, of course, we won. We always do; always have and always will. 

Saturday, Sept. 28. 

A red letter day for us. Regular Ides of March in fact. We played foot- 
ball with the Freshies, — and lost. Then came the flag rush, and — we lost. We 
got beat! Beat! ! We! ! ! Who would believe it? Who could believe it? We 
lost out! And still the earth is moving! — NOW, let the Freshies beware! No 
rrore mercy for them. Never! Never! We will be revenged for this mighty in- 
sult. How dared they do it? To us! Us! Oh, monstrous audacity! But wait! 
1 he day of vengeance is coming! Then shall we smite and spare not. Then shall 
there be weepings and wailings by these same too-high-aspiring Freshies, and great 
shall be their fall. The joy of those little ones today was quite touching — they 
were even in tears. But behold the result! Their tears seemed only to have made 
their greenness flourish the more, for what should they do but tear across the cam- 
pus like mad and ring the chapel bell. We were nearly paralyzed by their action. 
We knew better than that last year, even if we were Freshmen ; but then, we 
never have been an ordinary class, and we shouldn't be too hard on those that are. 
We have always had that inborn sense of what is right and proper and didn't have 
to be told; but you can't expect that from more than one class in a thousand. But 
it was most ungracious of those Freshies anyhow, after we had been so gentle with 
them, to take such mean advantage of us as they did. They surely can't realize 
how fearfully near they came to being utterly annihilated. But such is the reward 
of the virtuous. It's too bad every class isn't as noble and unselfish as we are. 


Thursday, October 4. 

Some visitors took, one of our class for a professor today. They could hardly 
believe it when told their error. Oh, we are certainly wonderful, that's all there 
is to it. 

Thursday, October 31. Hallowe'en. 

Whoopee! It's all over and it was great. We have covered ourselves 
with glory and pumpkin pie and are the pride of the whole university, Faculty and 
hreshmen alike. If we only don't have to pay the dentist bills that may result from 
our grand spread. Two brilliant gems have been added to our crown of glory, 
already sparkling with innumerable rare jewels. First, we have established a new 
college tradition. We have given the first barbecue. Everyone had a jolly time 
and plenty to eat. We certainly did ourselves proud and moreover, we conferred 
an untold blessing on the University by discovering the amphitheatre. That just 
shows how alive we are. That amphitheatre has been here as long as the University 
has, and so far as I have been able to learn it was here some time before, but it 
took us to discover it, and its value. Class after class have wandered about the 
grounds and have never seen that amphitheatre right here under their very noses. 
Verily, we have rare perceptive powers. Everyone had a scrumptious time, and 
the only complaint was that the meat was too salty. The athletic "doings" after the 
"feed" were decidedly classic and simply thrilled the spectators. We're too modest 
to throw boquets at ourselves, but somehow I guess we're simply wonderful; at 
ieast everyone says we are. 

Saturday, December 7. 

The Sophomore-Freshman football game came off today. We let the Fresh- 
ies make a touchdown and, as usual, modestly refrained from displaying our own 
talents. We simply had to give them the game. The reputation of the school de- 
manded it, and no sacrifice is too great in that case. Our Freshies have been getting 
too blue lately. We saw that something must be done, so that they wouldn't dis- 
grace the old U. Blue and green make yellow I believe. It's hard to believe, but 
the ungrateful wretches didn't even say thank you. I begin to fear that kindness is 
lost on them They never appreciate our efforts in their behalf. 

Saturday, December 14. 

The interclass track meet took place today and we carried off all the honors 
as usual. We can't help it; we're built that way. It seems as though honors fall 
over themselves in their haste to crown our noble brows. The class that came in 
second were almost twenty points behind. Imagine! Why, we won almost as much 
as all the rest put together. How I do admire a class that does things. 

Thursday, December 19. 

The interclass debate came off tonight. We debated with the Freshmen, and 
won hands down. Everyone agrees that our winner was easily the best speaker of 
the evening. We can do everything! No one can accuse us of being a lopsided 
class. Brawn and brains both are ours. They don't often fall to the lot of a single 
class in such quantities, however. 

Thursday, January 23. 

Noticed an article in the Silver and Gold telling how very much the Faculty 
love us, and how terribly brilliant they consider us. They often gaze in utter amaze- 
ment at us and our stupendous amount of knowledge. They talk about us in- 
cessantly. Oh, we are plainly "teacher's pet," and no wonder.

Snap-shot in Moonlight With Two Hours' Exposure. 





In the beginning the University of Colorado was created. And it came 
to pass in the year of our Lord, 1907, the mighty Freshman class of '1 1 appeared. 
Multitudes came out of the wilderness and gathered at the tabernacle of learning. 

On the first day they gathered themselves at the Main building and the pro- 
fessors spake unto them which way they should go. And they followed in their 
footsteps and soon came unto the mighty presence of President Baker. Here they 
bowed down and humbled themselves before him, and were asked to sign cards 
to show their good faith. From there they were led, like lambs to the slaughter, 
to the Secretary's office where they were relievd of thir gold and precious stones. 
And they were pronounced good. 

On the morning of the second day they arose, and a voice spake unto them 
saying, "Go ye unto the Dean." And they went. And he said, "Of all these 
courses thou mays't partake freely, but of this one of Philosophy, partakest not of 
it; for in the day that thou partakest thereof thou shalt surely flunk." And they 
heeded the prophet and chose their studies with wisdom. Then they repaired to 
Chapel where they worshipped the Lord, and offered thanks for their lives being 
spared, them. 

Then it came to pass that on the day after they had thus glorified the Lord, 
that many new trials and tribulations befell them, 
classes. And the prophets spake unto them saying, 
Freshmen; for I will reveal unto you abundance of learning. But mark ye, this 
is no longer High School and thou cans't not bluff." And they wept. And they 
were sore afraid and asked forgiveness from the Lord for their transgressions. And 
the evening and the morning was the third day. 

On the fourth day they came again unto the tabernacle. And they offered 
up to the Professors what they had done on their lessons. And it was pronounced 
wholly bad by the Prophets. And they spake saying: "Behold, we are against 
thee, thou most proud, and we will humble thee before our thrones." And the 
Freshmen's wrath was kindled against them for the injustice. And after they had 
gone out they sought redress. But they could find no help because they were 
not of the chosen people, but were Freshmen. 

And it came to pass that on the next morning they 
gether and elected the mightiest among them as officers, 
and the upper classmen were sore afraid at the mighty host 

For they went unto their 
'Keep silence before me, O 

gathered themselves to- 
Then they came forth 
And the host marched 

through the campus shouting, "Woe unto them that draw against us." And the 


upper classmen quitted the sidewalk and hid themselves in the temples. And the 
evening and the morning was the fifth day. 

The sixth day they went to their classes in the conceit of their power. And 
a voice spake unto them saying, "Verily I say unto you, you will not enter the 
kingdom of Heaven unless your ways are mended." But they heeded it not and 
went on their way of iniquity. And it came to pass in the evening of the sixth day, 
all the tribes, yea, even from Niwot and Aspen, gathered together in a mighty rally. 
And they went unto the vaudeville. After this they lifted up their voices, and 
glorified themselves. Thus endeth the day of vanity. 

And on the seventh day some rested and some were arrested. And they were 
looked on by the officials and were pronounced bad. 


Thus the first week was passed by the Freshmen. And after that they came 
into Chapel and asked forgiveness from the Lord. And they were forgiven. And 
thereafter they applied themselves to their studies. 

And many days passed and they learned under the prophets to write every- 
thing from a description of mother to a well-filled book. And it came to pass 
that the Sophomores became jealous of them. And they challenged the Freshmen 
to take their flag in an open field of battle. And the Freshmen were sore afraid, 
but the voice spake unto them: "Verily I say unto you, be no afraid for I am 
with you. They are not much." And on the day appointed all the tribes gathered 
on the field of battle. And they rose up in their wrath and smote the Sophomores 
in the neck. Moreover they took their flag and trampled it in the dust. 

Now the Freshmen again took up their books. And they grew out of their 
greenness, even as the cedars of Lebanon grow great and grey on the hills of Sidon. 

Football season came and many men offered themselves as a sacrifice. And 
even in this (it came to pass) they handed the Sophs the hot teapot. On Gamble 
field the mighty men met and tested the strength each of the other. But the Lord 
was with the Freshmen and strengthened them to cast their opponents off the field. 
And the upper classmen stood amazed at the outcome and feared for their safety. 
But the juniors were glad. And they gave a great reception and revelling and 
feasting was freely partaken of. 


And after these things many things happened that bared their characters to 
the rest. And they were pronounced good. And the first year of their captivity 
passed and the class of 1911 passed on. And this was the best revelation of their

College of Commerce 




The College of Commerce of the University of Colorado is established for 
the purpose of providing professional training for the practical demands of business. 
It aims to prepare men for careers in domestic and foreign commerce and bank- 
ing, insurance, transportation, trade and industry, journalism and in branches of 
public service in which knowledge of business is essential. 

Up to the present time the educational system has prepared only for a few 
activities and the great mass of the population has been unable to find prepara- 
tions for its life work in the institutions of learning. The Universities have had 
a course of study designed for the benefit of those students desiring to enter profes- 
sional life. The college and university have done all they could for the young man 
who wished to become a minister, teacher, physician, lawyer, journalist or en- 
gineer. A fraction more than eight per cent, of the population of the United 
States is engaged in the above professions. More than ninety per cent, of our popu- 
lation is employed in manufacture, agriculture, transportation and domestic service. 

The College of Commerce is accordingly developed in response to the demands 
of (1) enlarged commercial operations, (2) public service, (3) the desire of 
parents to give their children a college education and at the same time prepare 
them for their life work in business. The force of this third point should not be 
overlooked. At Yale, where an attempt was made to collect statistics on the ques- 
tion, the number of graduates going into business careers was greater than the num- 
ber entering any of the other callings. 

1 he curriculum of the College of Commerce is prepared with the following 
aims in view: 

birst — To furnish a certain amount of culture work, which is the mark of 
college training. 

Second — To give familiar. ty with the nature and workings of the industrial 
organism. This is attempted by studies in commercial geography, economics and the 
history of commerce, transportation, banking, business organization and manage- 

1 hird — To impart a certam amount of the knowledge of the physical and 
chemical sciences and their application to the industrial arts. 

Fourth — To give an acquaintance with the articles of commerce and the 
various industrial processes through which they pass. 

Fifth — To make a student acquainted with the principles of commercial law. 

Sixth — To supply an equipment in modern languages. 

Seventh — to afford an opportunity to acquire more knowledge of a partic- 
ular line of trade. 

The work of the College of Commerce is on the same high plane as that of the 
other under-graduate departments of the University. The entrance requirements 
are the same and an equal number of hours work is required for the Bachelor 
degree. The course is so arranged that by a proper choice of lectures the student 
will become eligible for the LLB. degree by two years of additional study in the 
Law School, and for the B. S. by two years of additional study in any of the 
engineering departments.

The Man Who Works His Way 

HE grandstands cheer the football man 

When he tackles hard and low, 
We grasp the winning orator's hand 

And our gratitude we show; 
The shark who plugs with white lips set, 

His grades are ample pay; 
But here's to the truest hero yet — 

The man who works his way. 

He gets no laurels for what he's done, 

His laurels are never known, 
He stays with his work till the battle's won, 

And he's won it all alone. 
So here's to him in his sweater old, 

We'll be proud of him some day; 
He's a man of iron with a heart of gold — 

The man who works his way. 

F. B. W. 




Dedicated to Mrs. John D. Flemming, whose kindly interest in those whom 

she is pleased to call "Our Boys" has made her the 

(riend of every man in the law school.

As surely as the dust, sifting in from vinknown places, has settled upon the 
sheep-bound volumes of our libraries, so surely in times past has the prejudice and 
misunderstanding ol a portion of the public covered our profession with a disguising 
and unbeautilul smut. The words "crafty' and "artful" and "scheming" have 
been applied to us and the tongues that spoke them have rolled in slurring tones. 
But the dust has not diminished the value and usefulness of the books and the pre- 
judice has not impaired the worth and efficiency of the profession. Both alike are 
to be found in place ready for service when there is need. And the lawyer has been 
as indifferent to disparagement as have the bound pages to the smudging jots upon 
their edges. We are prone to believe that that which is said against us comes usually 
in the form of good natured railery rather than in serious disapproval. And at 
any rate, secure in the knowledge of the greatness of our work, we go our way, 
trusting that the doubters will in time learn the folly of their own skepticism. This 
article is to be neither a justification nor a defense of the legal calling; the profes- 
sion is its own justification and surely it needs no defense. 

But, while we have no desire to exalt ourselves before others, we may well, 
for our own satisfaction, outline some of the ideals which are to animate our lives 
if we are to do and be in reasonable portion all that is required of us. And 
mostly, we refer to those same strong, wholesome ideals which fit equally well into 
all walks of life. For the lawyer must be, before all else, a man. He must be 
such a one as stern Mark Antony found in Brutus — the elements of character so 
mixed in him that Nature herself, ever simple and direct, may recognize and pro- 
claim his manhood. One who is controlled by petty or sordid motives, who finds 
no pleasure in laboring to advance the common welfare, or who lacks strength to 
support oppressed right against oppressing wrong, has no place in our ranks. 

We need energetic men. The law, if it means anything, means work — long, 
weary hours of monotonous, grinding labor, with results very distant, if in view at 
all, and with hope of reward at times growing dimmer and almost flickering out. 
At such times we must remember that while the mill of the Gods grinds slowly, 
it grinds exceedingly fine, and that no effort which we put forth here is ever really 
wasted. And, too, we need self-reliant men, who, though ever conservative and 
watchful of another's interests, are yet ready and able to strike boldly and well in 
time of need. Professor Van Cise sums it all up in the alliterative tri-utterance, 
"Care, Caution, Courage." To these we may venture to add Courtesy, such cour- 
tesy as shall enable us on all occasions "to speak readily and clearly" and "to feel 
at home among common people." 

And above all else we must have honest men. Indeed, no ordinary standards 
of honesty will serve as the criterion by which we are to gauge our conduct. The 
dishonest lawyer is frowned upon and avoided by the world, but such marks of 
disfavor are as nothing compared with the utter contempt in which such a one is 
held by the members of his own profession. Among them he is an outcast, a 
stranger where he would wish to be a friend. And yet we see among us strong men 
grow weak and stumble. It is not to be wondered at that frequently members of 
our brotherhood fall by the wayside, for in the course of our lives temptations and 
opportunities for trickery must come as regularly as the risings and settings of trie 
sun. But this fact must only serve to make the attorney more careful. In this 
respect he must not only hold himself to a regime of strictest discipline, but he 
must obey in its severest meaning the injunction to avoid the very appearance of 
evil. A lawyer perhaps even less than any other man, can afford to take chances 


where the elements of his own character are concerned. 

1 hese, then, are some of our ideals. They are selected more or less at 
random, and they do not purport to be a catalog of even the most important ones. 
But they serve to show that our standards are high. For those of us who do not 
live up to these standards nothing is more sure than failure; for those of us who do 
attain approximately to them, nothing is more certain than success. And having 
or,ce attained success we must still be watchful, remembering constantly that 

"They that stand high have many blasts to sha^e them. 
And if they fall they dash themselves to pieces." 

We shall be helped in the fight by an abiding faith in the eternal fitness of 
things and by a calm reliance on the support and protection of an all-wise God. 
The Law School teaches us many things and of these many will be forgotten, 
crowded out by new experience. But whatever may be lost to memory, we shall 
always keep in mind the duty that has been laid upon us here: "During all our 
lives we shall strive, by helping to strike down the usurpers who would dethrone 
her, to royalize indeed, the blood that throbs in Justice's veins.

For aeons of time, 

Ye stand like hoary sentinels 

Haised by power Divine. 



So bare and bleak and cold, 

Stand out on high your solemn heights 

All bathed in evening's gold. 

In fastness 
And vastness, 
Emblems of Eternity, 
From canyons depths to lofty peak 
Ye show Gods' power and majesty.

"Above all things, Flemming, what's going to happen next?" 

"Here I am an old man and I never saw such turmoil in the Colorado legis- 
lature since the adoption of the Constitution." 

"Hard to tell, Mr. President." "There's surely been a great disturbance 
ever since the Class of 1908 graduated from the Law School and were admitted 
to the Bar." "I tell you what, I always was mighty proud of that class. 

" 1 hey've certainly been running things with a high hand down there at the 
Capitol." "It reminds me of the early days when I used to be mayor of Lead- 

" I hey're not satisfied with state reformation, but are even advocating uniform 
divorce laws and government manufacture of liquors and all such things. Some 
of these new laws are pretty hard on us old fellows." 

"Since Pease published his book on Real Property, there's been a great 
revising of statutes along the line of Wills and Real Property. Those old legisla- 
tors didn't know much anyhow." 

"And they have proven everything unconstitutional, even to the compulsory 
chapel attendance here in the University. Some of 'em probably remember how we 
used to make era go to chapel every Monday." 

"There's some great constitutional lawyers in that class.' 

"So I understand." "I didn't notice that we made 'em go to chapel very 
much though. They used to go to Doc. Ayer and get a clearance card about 
once in six weeks, and you fellows over there never looked at the date. Instead 
of going to chapel they were probably over there fooling with that fire extinguisher, 
wetting up the sidewalks." 

"Oh, well, boys will be boys. Why, they even used to mandamus me in the 
moot court when I didn't give 'em back their examination marks." 

"Professor Reed thinks they're some pretty clever fellows on Corporations, 
too. Said they were the best class he ever had on the subject." 

"Some of the boys are fine on Mining Law." 

"If they hadn't been pretty smart they couldn't ever have thought of so many 
tricks to play." 

"Have you heard about the girls? Both of them made mighty fine clerks. 
Great successes." 

"Taken all together, it's the best lot of lawyers that have ever been in the state 
since I was District Attorney under Judge Hallet." 

"Well, I guess I'd better be going. Come on 'Whiskers.' You ought to 
remember those folks. Had your picture taken with 'em. You ought to be a 
mighty proud little dog for that." M. C.

BATES, WALKER J. Nineteen-eight. 

An untiring worker, who always passes exams., to the surprise of some of his 
classmates and much to the chagrin of others. 

Better known as "Mary Sunshine." She reprimands us smartly within the 
Law School and defends us stoutly without. 


A staid and stately gentleman much given to introspective cogitation, but a 
splendid good classmate for "all that." 

Student, fusser and all-around good fellow. Jack is to be kept in view as one 
of our rising young lawyers. May the leaven come in touch with much "dough." 

After another year the Law School is justly proud of "Farney." A football 
hero and a prince of good fellows. 

"Love me little, love me long," is the burden of his song. 


Our President, and the man whom his classmates delight to honor by mak-

The most profound legal mind in the class. Ten years at the most will see 
him on the Federal bench. 

Of Pughe we always have been proud and proud we always will be, for 
he's been on the football team and able to make it still. 

In later years a prominent lawyer, a man of few words but weighty and one 
who will be an honor to the profession. 

"Dug" could not play football this year so he takes consolation in study. He 
is very adaptable to anything but small space. 

A student and a gentleman from Ann Arbor. His name may be "rude" and 
his initials "seedy" (C. D.), but it is a long, long way from fact. 

A keen and speedy worker. To her skill in shorthand the class owes what- 
ever success we have attained in lecture courses. She believes in using big words 
but in wasting no time about it, but don't anybody drop a book — 

A gentleman of leisure and a lover of the good things of this world. Es- 
pecially strong on "covenants" and "comity." 

We have long been hard put for the reason of Van's study of law, but at 
last we have it. It seems that Van signed a contract to serve a remainder in fee 
after his life estate with Gabriel's choir, and is now seeking a way to award the 
agreement because he won't be allowed to match nickels in Heaven. 



Another year has marched past, and we stand before the school as Juniors. 
We have toiled up through the devious ways of the Freshman and Sophomore 
years and here we are. 

Our class has among its members more Liberal Arts and B. A. men than 
any preceding class. Therefore a seriousness pervades the class room, much to 
the discomfiture of the "Silver and Gold" law editor. Jokes are rare but make 
up for their scarcity in their quality. 

Now and then Hodson's laugh wakes us up to laugh with him. Pratt's "Yes, 
dear," in response to roll call causes amusement. Ballinger keeps the dryness of 
recitation from becoming a bore by an occasional allusion to "A trip to Marshall." 
Mr. Coate's arguments with Professor Reed add their bit, and on the whole we 
find the day not very hard. Between classes while waiting for Professor Pease, 
frequent meetings of the "Friend's Club" helps the good fellowship along. 

We have buckled on our armor and "sailed into" the year's work with a 
vigor that has brought results. "Judge" Avery leads the class with grades that 
make the ordinary man's head swim. There are others who seem to think that 
anything below 95 is a disgrace. Yes, we have accomplishhed results, and when 
the smoke of battle has cleared away, we will be awaiting the third and last ordeal 
with the same confidence with which we met this year's work. 

And so we expect to go on through life, justifying the existence of the class 
of 1 909, and getting the same results in practical life that we have done in school. 
We expect to go on maintaining the same high standard we have set up, and we 
hope to wm a fair measure of glory and honor for the Colorado University.

CLASS OF 1910 

In the fall of 1907 there entered the University of Colorado the largest law 
class ever enrolled in the institution. From states north, south, east and west, and 
from every part of the Centennial State they came. When registered it could 
easily be seen that this was to be the banner class of the Law School. No one 
disputed this as far as numbers weie concerned, and the enterprising and business- 
like manner in which they took hold of the work showed that the members of the 
Class of 1910 were going to be up to the standard in scholarship. 

From the first day a spirit of harmony seemed to prevail. All began with 
a simultaneous movement to work together for the good of the class, the Law 
School and the University of Colorado. 

As soon as everyone had become accustomed to the daily routine of class 
work, the individual members began to take interest in the many other branches of 
University activities. A function to promote harmony, good fellowship and school 
spirit was the annual Law Smoker. The two upper classes were, according to 
custom, the hosts for the evening and the manner in which they aroused en- 
thusiasm gave the Freshmen a feeling of exultation. 

From the first, members of the class began to participate in student affairs. 
Several became members of the football squad, and the class as a whole established 
a precedent by organizing a football team. Although new at the game the team 
put up a grand fight in the games played. Our opponents, who were the Fresh- 
men Medics, although more experienced and heavier, were forced to exert them- 
selves to the utmost in order to win. 

A basketball team was also organzied, and proved to be one able to hold its 
own against any class team in school. 

In debating one of our members was chosen with five others in the final try- 
out for a team to debate against the University of Utah in an inter-state contest. 

Our class numbers thirty-five, fourteen coming to us from the college depart- 
ment of this or other schools. Every year the number of college men to enter the 
Law School has showed an increase and the Class of 1910 has been no exception 
to the rule. 

School honors held by members of the class are many, some of the most im- 
portant of which are Editor and Associate Editor of the "Silver and Gold," Man- 
ager of the Dramatic Club and Secretary and Treasurer of the combined Fresh- 
men Class. 



Who left Nebraska for a good school. 

Modest, meek and shy. 

Has the brightest mind in the class. 

No relation of the famous B. B. Boyd, but rivaling him as an artist as can 
be shown by his individual drawings of the class. 
CLAUDE F. BOARD, B. A. University of Indiana. 

He's a Hoosier, but always knows his lessons. 

He's from Trinidad but through no fault of his. 

Prof. Reed — "What is chose in possession, Mr. Disman?" 

Disman — "A chose in possession is real estate." 


When the class isn't prepared Fryberger is appointed to talk with the in- 
structor about complexion powders and the price of hair. 

He says nothing but saws wood. 

An occasional but welcome visitor. 

"Chick" is a good student, willing to work, "but no particular." 

Professional pugilist, footracer and strong man. 

He's here for work first, last and all the time. 

Small in stature, but great in knowledge. 

"Budd" is a Van Cise the Second when it comes to extinguishing history exams. 

A good student; sometimes called "Blackstone" Lewis. 

McCutcheon — "This is the law in some jurisdictions." 

A bright and conscientious student. 

"Professor Kinesbury, will you please repeat that again." 

A man who cares ? 


Clothing merchant, president of class, and last but not least, scholar. 

After giving the Engineering School a two-years' trial this industrious young 

man grew tired of inactivity and entered the Law School. 

Champion politician, ward heeler, socialist and new thought man of the class. 

Had to discontinue history on account of ill health. 

"Oh, I think law is a perfectly lovely study." 

His pale and wan appearance comes from overwork ? 


An athlete, who alway keeps in trim so as to be the better able to pursue his 

studies ? 


Without striving he always obtains or comes close to, high mark. 

Absolutely the busiest man in school. 

"Larceny is a degree of homicide below manslaughter." 

I he man with the smile that won't come off. 


Another man who found the college too slow. 

Who comprised one-third of the 1907 class of Louisville High School. 




To the respected Dean of the College of Engineering 
we gratefully dedicate these pages. 


(Efliteg? of iEngtn^rtng 

1 echnica! education is of comparative recent origin. The first school that 
attempted any such work was the Ecola Polytechmque, which was established in 
France in I 794 to train men for the army. The first institution in the world to give 
instruction in engineering not military, was founded at Troy, New York, in 1825. 
The growth was slow up to 1862, when Congress passed the Morrill Act granting 
to the several states public lands for the benefit of instruction in engineering. From 
that time the growth of scientific and technical schools in this continent has savored 
cf the marvelous. In part it has been due to the changed ideas and the transfigured 
ideals of the American people ; in part to the recognized need of greater skill and 
more of scientific knowledge for the development of the natural resources and for 
the direction of the growing enterprises. 

It has been until recently the general belief that a man with a technical educa- 
tion was narrow minded and useful in but one line cf work. But the very aim of 
technical education is to train a person to think, to reason, to put his thoughts into 
actions, to be more useful and more successful, and to make of him a man, broad 
minded and cultured. The possibilities of the future are great with hope, and the 
educated engineer is to be the most important factor in the development of the 
world's resources. Already the lives of individuals and the fortunes of men are at 
h.s disposal. 

At the dedication of the engineering building of McGill University, Mon- 
treal, General Walker said: 

"Every profession has its black sheep and its doubtful practitioners, but I 
boldly challenge comparison between the scientific and engineering men of Amer- 
ica, as a body, and its literary men, or even its artists, in the respects of devotion to 
truth, of simple confidence in the right, of delight in good work for good work's 
sake, of indisposition to coin name and fame into money, of unwillingness to use one 
thing that is well done as a means of passing off upon the public three or four things 
that are ill done. I know the scientific men of America well and I entertain a 
profound conviction that in sincerity, simplicity, fidelity and generosity of char- 
acter, in nobility of aims and in earnestness of effort they are surpassed, if indeed, 
they are approached, by no other body of men." 

The engineering department of the University of Colorado practically dates 
from the year 1893, when the demand for higher technical training forced the 
Regents to erect a small, one-story brick building, which was then the engineering 
building, but which is now only a small portion of our present home. At first 
two four-year courses were offered, Civil Engineering, under Professor Fulton, and 
Electrical Engineering, directed by Professor Rowe of the Physics Department. 
Such was the beginning; now let us note the change and development these fifteen 
years have brought about. The attendance has been steadily increasing until now 
the enrollment has reached two hundred and seventy-five. Such an increase in num- 
bers has made it necessary to increase the faculty to ten members, besides adding 
several student assistants. Two four-year courses have been added ; the Mechanical 
Department was added in 1901, the Chemical in 1904. The little one-story build- 
ing has been enlarged to six times its original size and during the last year the 
Engineering shops have been built. This building is the largest and finest one of its 


kind in the United States and is capable of accommodating over two hundred and 
fifty students in drawing and shop work. 

Although we are very proud of our buildings and very busy with our work, 
yet we do not for a minute forget that we are a part of the University and that we 
must strive for it first before our department. We are boosters for all that is good 
and just and we lead in many of the college activities. No matter where we are or 
what befalls us, may this spirit ever remain with the Colorado Engineers and let us 
always be loyal to our Dean, our Faculty and our University.

1 he Engineering Societies are three in number: the Student Branch of the 
American Institute of Electrical Engineers; the Civil Engineering Society, and the 
Chemical-Mechanical Society. A fourth is formed by the union of these three as 
the Associated Engineering Societies, the main purpose of which is to publish the 
Journal of Engineering, an annual publication devoted to a discussion of technical 
and engineering topics by the Faculty, students and alumni of the College of En- 
g.neering. The Journal has a wide circulation among colleges and active en- 
gineers, and as it represents, in an excellent manner, the high class of work done 
in the school and the ability of its graduates to take their places in the engineer- 
ing profession, it is one of the best advertisements which is sent out by the College 
of Engineering. 

1 he growth of the engineering societies during the present year, and the in- 
creasing interest manifested in their meetings, have been very gratifying indeed. 
I he identification of the majority of the students with these organizations has a 
marked influence in raising the scholarship of the school ; but it is also gratifying 
as an indication that the students have purpose, which, after all, is largely instru- 
mental in raising our standards. 

I he programs at the regular meetings consist of papers on technical and en- 
gineering topics by students or members of the Faculty, followed by informal dis- 
cussions. The societies endeavor, however, to secure speakers from among the 
active engineers of the state to address the meetings at irregular intervals, thus 
bringing the students in touch with the engineering profession in a way which 
would othrwise be impossible. The amount which the student adds to his store of 
knowledge by this association is by no means the greatest benefit which he re- 
ceives ; he comes away from the meeting with an added enthusiasm for his work, 
and the next day when he goes back to his formulas and integrals and stress dia- 
grams, he can see far beyond them to the day when he shall have completed his 
college training, necessarily elementary and theoretical, but none the less important. 
He feels that, after all, life is worth while, and he is eager for the day when he 
shall be able to take his place in the ranks of the noble engineering profession.

Just look at those books, Dick, and to think we are to know everything that 
is in them. Quite a libraiy we have acquired since we first started in up here. 
Now there is that analyt, I guess that is the smallest book in the lot, but before 
DeLong got through with us it seemed to be a pretty large one. There's descript — 
I wonder where Emch is anyway, do you remember his "Vhy iss dis," when he 
was correcting our mistakes. I suppose in Switzerland he doesn't have to bother 
with talking English and can give all his energy to teaching. The class following us 
didn't have the benefit of Emch's knowledge. Oh, well, it didn't matter much 
anyhow; it's too bad though that hazing was abolished before we came because 
even if we didn't need it I believe it might have helped them considerably. 

Next year we wiggled through Descript. under Wallace ; do you remember 
that piece about the requirements of an engineer that he used to have us copy? I 
believe I know that yet. 

Is that your plate from the Freshman Party that came off when we were 
Sophomores? I wonder if the rest of the fellows have theirs yet? They were 
rather expensive souvenirs though, for they cost us about $15.00. 

Why have you that Mechanics stuck 'way over there by itself for? Don't 
you like to look at it? Well, I don't blame you; but wasn't Doc Duane a prince 
of a fellow? It's too bad that he left the University. Oh, there's Least Squares; 
do you know that whenever I see that book it reminds me of the lecture Eppy gave 
in Chapel on gambling; I wonder what is the probability of his making a home 
run; he's sure a great baseball man. 

Isn't it surprising the way our class has dropped off in numbers? When 
we started there were about ninety of us and now there are twenty-seven left. I 
remember the first day I came to this place — well, I won't say where I came from — 
but I was actually so green that I was afraid to step outside of the Union Depot 
in Denver on account of the confidence men. I managed to arrive here safe and 
sound, however, and the first thing that took my eye was Harry Curtis sitting on 
an old box over by the Main with a lonesome look on his face. That look always 
haunted me; I wonder if I looked like Harry when I first came here? 

We sure worked our Freshman year, but now, well — "Sluff and the class 
sluffs with you, work and you work alone" — that is our motto you know. We did'nt 
get acquainted with the fellows though until our Junior year on the Engineering 
trip. From the time we left Boulder till the end of the trip we were thrown to- 
gether every day and found out the good and bad points of everyone. Even "Our 
Uncle John" showed his business ability and bought a livery stable in Victor with 
our money. I wish he had issued stock so we could have something to show for 
our share in it. I guess we never will forget that Skaguay trip and the ride on the 
train with "Shorty" Evans. 


We have some brave men in our class though ; do you remember Jake's daring 
trip in the Skaguay tunnel, where he crawled through three feet of water for seven 
hundred feet to save climbing over the treacherous pass of the Victor Divide? 

Has Meisel got a patent yet on his new electric shaving machine that shaves 
you while you sleep? I hear he is going to run some tests with it on Stitzer's hair 
in the near future. Are you and Thorsen still figuring on that scheme of ex- 
tracting cube root by sight or are you using slide rules now? 

I hear that Logan is looking for a position with the Colorado Portland 
Cement Co., so he can be near the young lady he captured with his blue shirt and 
red tie. He is even taking some tests of cement for his thesis. 

"Now up there on the North Platte we — " Do you suppose Harry will ever 
forget that? I don't think we will. It's a shame that he has to carry six hours' 
work this semester, but then it gives him time to show his literary ability on the 
Silver and Gold staff. 

Well, it won't be long now till our good times are all over and we will be out 
hustling for ourselves. They are a mighty good bunch of fellows, Dick, and I 
wonder where we will all be ten years from now? The friends we have met 
in the last four years are probably the best we will ever have. Well, "Life's a 
funny proposition after all." 

Holy Smoke! its after one o'clock; let's turn in. Good-night. 

Don't forget to put up the window.

This is the first railroad project the Junior Civils have ever encountered and to 
some, owing to the varied fields of civil engineering, it will be the last. But then, un- 
doubtedly, some of us later on will be engaged in laying the steel bands which 
will carry the thundering traffic many miles across the continent. Sufficient to say, 
however, that none will be more carefully thought out or none in which greater in- 
terest will be manifested than this, our first line. 

1 his project was begun on September 1 4 with the reconnaisance. An in- 
terested observer could have seen us, twelve strong, wending our way down the 
C. & S. R. R. tracks, a merry bunch of fellows, laughing and exchanging witticisms. 
For instance, there was "Germany" Kurtz, whom Daubt and Nichols have vainly 
tried to convert into a civilized engineer; "Happy Heine" Gay, "Sorrel" Rey- 
nolds, "Sphinx" Kimmel, "Strong-heart" Hoklas and others, whose names should 
be in the Hall of Fame or whose delicate features should be on the shelf with the 
busts of Macauley, Gibbons and others of the cloth. 

I wice, and often thrice a week, would this bunch of railroaders turn their 
faces toward the scene of the.r operations, across the mesas close to the foothills, 
whose lofty heights inspired the gang to the best that lay in them, which was a 
quantity of no mean magnitude. On Saturday mornings as the cocks were crow- 
ing and before the University in general had responded to the breakfast call, 
could this band of embryo engineers be thus seen walking stolidly on, with serious- 
ness depicted on their faces, which meant that the veto power exercised by Pro- 
fessor Williams against smoking was a bad-tasting pill. 

Originally the Juniors had intended to build a spur to the quarry just east 
of the third flatiron, but after the memorable night of September 30, the clamor 
that arose from both faculty and student body demanded that we run an inde- 
pendent line to Marshall, with the stipulation that hourly trains be in commission. 
This was put to a vote before the Junior Civils and a resolution in favor of the 
scheme was carried with only the one dissenting vote of "Strong-heart" Hoklas. 

In order to finance this line. Gay offered to sell his pair of purple socks, Dodds 
guaranteed to don a ministerial garb and give utterance from some Methodist pul- 
pit, Kurtz declared his intention of giving lectures on Germany, while Dendahl 
promised to get on a vaudeville circuit and imitate Paderewski. 

After the preliminary line had been run and the question of finance settled, 
the more interesting problem of final location confronted us. Part of the gang 
had the magnificent idea of an air line, but the Big Chief, with his keen foresight, 
saw the futility of this scheme and reckoned that by the judicious placing of a 
few curves we might economize on our expenditures and have more money to spend 
when we arrived at Marshall. Loud cheers greeted this suggestion. 

Thus it has come about that our railroad has materialized from a faint speck 
of an idea with a tangible object. Our problems of location have been solved, 
our streams have been bridged, our cuts and fills balanced, our curves spiraled and 
slope stakes set ready for the contractor to cast the first shovelful

The shops of the College of Engineering, University of Boulder, which have 
just been opened to students, are the most complete of any belonging to an educa- 
tional institution in the country. The shop building consists of two parts, a front 
portion, two stones high, constructed of Boulder pressed brick and finished inside 
with wooden partition walls and wooden floors, and a back, one story high and two 
bents deep, made of Boulder pressed brick and reinforced with steel columns sup- 
porting Ferik roof trusses of the Ketchum modified saw-tooth roof type. The 
partition walls in the latter are of brick and the floor in each room is especially 
adapted to the use for which the particular room is set aside. 

The structure faces the north. I o the east of the main entrance on the lower 
floor is a wood shop forty feet square. It contains twenty-two benches with the 
proper equipment of vices and tools for each. On the left is the turning shop, 40 
x 40 feet in dimensions. This is provided with twenty-two lathes and their ac- 
cessories, besides a planer, band saw and other machines used in the shaping of 
wood. Between the two rooms is a wide hall. 

On the second floor of the two-story part of the shops, is a drawing room, 
75 feet long and 40 feet wide, and, in addition, an office, 1 6 feet square, a hall 
and toilet rooms, above which is located a blue-print room in the attic. 

1 he one-story portion of the building contains the machine shop, forge room 
and foundry. The machine shop, on the right of the hall, is 40 x 80 feet in dimen- 
sions. The foundation for the floor is made of bituminous concrete six inches 
thick, in which are laid 4x4 sleepers two feet apart. To the sleepers are spiked 
2 x 8-inch planks for a sub-floor, and on the latter is nailed a wearing surface con- 
sisting of 1 x 4-inch yellow pine lumber. The room contains lathes, shapers, planers 
and all the necessary equipment for the building of a machine. 

Next to the two-story part, on the western side of the building, is the forge 
room. This is 40 feet square and contains twenty Buffalo forges, each provided 
with an anvil and each connected to the blower and exhaust, which are run by 
electric motors. The floor in this room is constructed of hard burned brick laid 
on edge in a sand filler. Immediately back of the forge room comes the foundry, 
which is considered to have the best arrangement of equipment in the country. The 
floor of the foundry is made of moulder's sand to a depth of eighteen inches, and 
in the southwest corner of the room is a Newton Cupilo furnace with a capacity of 
two tons of metal per hour. 

The floors of all the lower halls of the building are of cement concrete. It is 
intended by the College of Engineering to put in one hundred steel lockers in the 
back hall for the convenience of the students, and, if possible,, also to provide a 
dressing room in one end of the machine shop. 

The roof of the two-story section of the shops is covered with Ludowici tile 
laid on % -inch sheeting. On the north slope there is a skylight 6 feet long and 4 
feet wide, covered with glass tile of the same make. The one-story section is cov- 
ered with a tin roof. The metal is laid with standing seams, and is covered with 
two coats of red lead. 

As the engineering shops stand today they constitute the most perfectly equip- 
ped building on the campus, and their erection was a monster step towards the 
supremacy of the University of Colorado Engineering School in the West. 

H. H. L. 






When in the fall of 1906 the present Sophomore Class registered in the 
University, there occurred in history an event the like of which has never been known. 
1 he birth of J. Caesar, Napoleon, Charlemagne or James H. Baker was an in- 
significant trifle compared with our entrance. In our class was at least one star 
in every branch of university life, football, basketball, baseball, track, art, litera- 
ture, mathematics, chemistry, oratory, debating and fussing. 

Aside from being the largest, smartest, most energetic and free-thinking class 
in the history of the institution, we are destined to make more and larger ripples 
on the sea of life than any organization or gathering since the landing of Columbus. 
To enumerate our virtues would require many volumes larger than this. Our heart 
is very large and has some space for everybody. Our latch string is always out 
to the wise and generous. Only distinguished persons can belong to our class, for 
small ones appear at once so utterly lost and so hopelessly confused that they see 
only the exit lights and the aisle. 

Our generosity was clearly demonstrated in the flag rush and football game 
with the Freshmen when, after whipping them to a standstill in baseball, we kindly 
permitted them to carry away the grapes in the other events. Their heads then 
increased in size beyond all endurance and they felt that after all, perhaps, they 
were somebody and would amount to a little in time. To clearly show them their 
error we defeated the entire school in the fall track meet and resolved to do so in 
every following contest. The result is hidden in the misty future from the benighted 
world, but we, Sophomores, the Class of Nineteen-Ten, the heroes of the Uni- 
versity, the pride of Prexys heart, see clearly that our path is covered with laurels, 
bouquets and victories, until in our modesty we dare not mention or hint that there 
are two more years of fortune and blessing for the University; two more years in 
which the school may feel, justly, that she has the leading position in college circles 
and know that she holds the center of the stage and is in the pupil of the public 

Now for the social side of it. 'Twas in the mind of a loyal Sophomore En- 
gineer that originated the idea of giving a barbecue to the school — not a "coffee 
and sandwich lunch" — but a real barbecue, a feast of everything. We planned 
and gave the best "German" ever. 

In short, we have, in following the customs of the school, done a little better 
than any preceding class, and in the way of new functions and traditions, have 
established more that is original than any other class. Truly, truly indeed, should 
the University feel our worth and look to us for knowledge and manners.

CDA1J1J °/ 1911 

"We're here because we're here, because we're here, because we're 
here." Yes, we're here and we're here to stay too, for there isn't a quitter in our 
class. We came from every corner of the state, from the city and the farm, from 
the mountain and the plain. They (i. e. the poor old Sophs) said we were 
"green." Well, perhaps we were green in the ways of the University, and per- 
haps our trousers were not rolled up quite so high; or it may be that our footwear 
was not of such brilliant hues as that of our would-be critics. But we stoutly 
maintain that we can and will learn, (and I may say in this parenthesis that it 
is this characteristic which radically differentiates us from the class immediately 
above us). 

To organize and concentrate our scattered forces was our first task. And 
this was done ably and well by the leaders who rose from our ranks. The 
Sophs who went down to defeat before us on the gridiron and around the flag 
pole will tell you that they met, not individual men, but a solid wall of brawn and 
determination which could not be shaken (not by such puny strength as theirs at 
least). We may have been "green" but we were not "yellow." 

We have laid aside the High School pins which once adorned our coats, and 
we have buried our treasured diplomas deep in our trunks. We have larger aims 
and interests now. 

We do not wish to brag. It is more becoming that our deeds speak for us. 
We are ready to cross swords with the Sophs anywhere and at any time those 
worthies can get enough of their members together to make a noise like a class, and 
we promise them that when the smoke clears away the remains of their bunch will 
not be large enough for the University to keep as a souvenir. We are ready and 
willing to carry the heavy end of the stick, but we do not propose to be "sat upon" 
if we can help it. We realize keenly that we are standing at the foot of the hill 
looking up; the path ahead is bright. We are mighty proud of our old Varsity, 
and our Prex and our Profs, and we will back our Seniors against the world. 

Much of our Class History remains to be made. We have those amongst 
us who are going to the top. In every school activity you will find our men 
working quietly and earnestly. Of our plans and hopes I shall not speak now, yet 
I can say that when the Senior of Nineteen Eleven writes the Class History the 
story will read as fair as the best.

Being a True and Authentic Account 

of ye 

Acts and Doings 

of ye 

Junior and Senior Engineers 

March 25 to March 30, 


It was a cold and clear March morning. The Varsity station fairly overflowed 

with the crowd of Engineers — that is to say that at least ten of the "gang" had 

managed to squeeze into the above mentioned edifice while the other forty-odd wer? 

content to stand without. 

"O we're going to the Hamburg Show 
J o see the lion and the wild kangaroo" — the good old melody rang out in 
deep strong tones — 

"And well all stick together 
In rain or shiny weather 

For we're going to see the whole show thru" — then swelling to a mighty chorus 
in the 

"Hail! Hail! The gang's all here. 
So what do, what do we care now?" 
Uncle Milo was there, looming head and shoulders above the crowd, and 
seeming a little uneasy as he glaced over that same "gang." Shorty Evans was 
there with his glad hand and happy grin, looking as dignified as four feet seven can 
look in company with seven feet four. Uncle John was there, too, complacently 
puffing a long "Havana." And last (if not least) Ford was there, traveling incog 
as Uncle Milo's valet. And so was all the rest of us "there." 

Presently the valiant little C. & S. dummy came struggling up the grade, took 
us aboard, and the Inspection tour had begun. 

— A Parenthesis. Having thus prefaced this true and authentic account, I 
shall now proceed by merely copying, fac simile, pages from my private note book. 
These notes were necessarily abbreviated and it devolves upon the reader to fill them 
in, using freely the imagination and having no fear that the picture will be over- 

March 25. We're off for Pueblo. Dodds, Eby, Ireland and Salberg read- 
ing their Bibles, the rest playing cards, smoking and swapping lies. Bill Bailey writes 
the first letter home to Mirandy. 

P. M. Pueblo. Wind blowing a gale (never blows in Boulder). Air filled 
with dust, sand, smoke, tin cans and every other conceivable kind of dirt. Have to 
chew every breath before I can breathe it. Visited the C. F. & I. Steel Works. 
Made about fifty pages of notes which I hope to unravel some day. General impres- 
sion — put together all the roar and rumble and crash and smash and thunder and 


howl and hiss you can possibly imagine, multiply the result by twenty-nine, add 
seventeen and you have a slight idea of the interior of the steel works. After all 
details have vanished from the mind the great living fact remaining is, that this 
enormous quivering machine takes in at one point a continuous stream of broken 
iron ore and at another point turns out an endless stream of steel rails, bolts, bars, 
beams, rods, nails, wire, and a hundred other products which meet the needs of this 
age of "stone and steel." 

March 26, A. M. Ditto, ditto. Uncle John seems to be the only man who 
knows his way about the works. They tell me that Professor Evans led his squad 
back to the same mill seven times and then remarked wonderingly, "Why, it seems 
to me that we have been here before." Have breathed enough mud and sand to run 
a brick yard for a week. Dodds has discovered that alkali water and Pueblo beer 
will not mix. Moral — Don't drink alkali water. Bailey writes second letter to 

P. M. We're off for Canon City — Praise the Lord! 

March 27. We went down to the skating rink last night (except a few, who 
went fussing — Uncle John was not at the rink). Today we visit the Portland 
Cerr.ent Works. Met at the station by "Ave" Leavitt and Superintendent Brown, 
who proceeded to chase us over to the quarry. Dinner on the Company — a fine 
dinner, too, only square since leaving Boulder. Followed the cement process from 
quarry to packing house. Back to Canon. Tally-ho to the swimming pool in even- 
ing. Uncle John goes fussing again, also Heaton. 

March 28. A. M. A few of us visited the Canon City Power Plant. Most 
of us didn't. Raided the "Pen." Lots of old friends there. Everyone buys 
souvenirs. Mirandy is to have a nice nickle ring — I saw Bill buying it for her. 
Cood-bye, Canon. 

Noon. Victor. Snowing hard, and Skaguay is twelve miles from here. 

Evening. I am sorry to record the misfortunes of today. To speak plainly 
we were "sold." First, Uncle John, acting as agent for a Victor firm, sold us a 
livery barn at a gilt-edge price. His commission on the deal has been variously 
estimated at from 90 to 97 per cent., that is, his commission was that much if he 
paid only what the outfit was worth. The rest of the day was a sort of night- 
mare during which we were acutely conscious of being half frozen, starved, tired and 
buncoed. Even the beauty of Skaguay and the splendid panoramic views on all 
sides of us failed to arouse us from the gloom which had settled upon the spirits 
of the gang. Extravagant guesses were made as to what Uncle John intended to 
do with his spending money — and most of these guesses were framed in blue. Never 
before did the little camp look quite so good as Victor did tonight as we descended 
upon it from the wind-swept ridges. The gang has broken up into little groups of 
three and four and are scattered all over Victor and the Creek. Good spirit seems 
to be restored — I saw some of the fellows restoring it at least. Bill is writing his 
fourteenth letter. 

March 29, A. M. Visiting the Portland, the Gold Coin and the Ajax mines. 
This inspecting business is fast becoming other than a joke. We are going down 
to the Springs this afternoon. Bishop and Walsh eloped with a couple of Victor 
beauties. The party was overtaken at Cameron by the irate fathers and the young 
ladies returned home. Bishop and Walsh are still hiding out. 

Colorado Springs. Vaudeville, Hagermann Hall, etc. The fussers fuss (in- 
cluding Uncle John). Bill is homesick. 

March 30, A. M. Pike's Peak Power Plant, Peltons, Pickles and Prunes. 

Manitou is not a dry town. Sub-station A, sub-station B, and . Well, 

that is as far as most of us got. The North Colorado Springs Power Plant. 

Well, the trip is ended ; we're homeward bound. I have two thousand 
pages of notes and a few stray ideas. We have had our work and our play, have 
learned a little and have had a good time. I feel that I know the gang a little better 
and that we will carry back with us a feeling of comradeship which this little outing 
has deepened in many ways. 



To the Dean Who Is So Successfully Carrying on the 
Policy of Former Dean Giffln, in Building l'p the 
Medical School. We Respectfully Dedicate These 


School of Medicine 

The Colorado School of Medicine, as the medical department is officially 
called, is one of the oldest departments of the University, being established in 1883. 
At first two west rooms in the old main building sheltered the few students, while 
now five buildings — Medical, Anatomy, Hospital, Hale Scientific and Chemistry — 
are inadequate for the demands made upon them. 

The standard of the School of Medicine is high. In 1 895 the regular four- 
year course was adopted and is at present in force. In addition, beginning in 1910, 
two years of college work will be required for entrance. The school belongs to the 
American Medical Association, and that it is in good standing is evidenced by the 
fact that the association requires 4,000 hours for graduation and Colorado now offers 

The faculty comprises between 30 and 40 of the leading specialists of Denver, 
Boulder and Longmont, men who are recognized not only locally, but who are well 
known all over Colorado and many of whom are known throughout the United 
States. Our retiring dean, Dr. Giffin, brought the school up to a high standard, 
and Dr. Harlow, the present dean, will continue to advance it, if the regents and the 
state will only awaken a little more fully to their duty until the State Medical 
School shall rank first among like institutions of the whole west, and second to very 
few in the nation. Right now the U. of C. holds this splendid and unique reputa- 
tion, that it is the only institution in this country from which no medical graduate 
ever "flunked" before a state board. 

Briefly such are the facts, and the "medics," faculty and students, are justly 
proud. We believe that no other department of the 'varsity requires so great an 
amount of work and turns its graduates out so generally well equipped. True, we 
may not be seen so often as campus ornaments and at university functions, but we 
would like it kindly remembered that a forty-hour-per-week schedule doesn't admit 
of much but toil. Our slogan is, "Watch the Medics grow," and it may not be 
long until the medical dep't shall be the most noted in the University. True, "Prex" 
and the regents do not remember us so often with buildings and appropriations as 
they do other more fortunate departments, but we firmly believe they will yet awaken, 
the state yet awaken, and the medical school will receive the recognition which it so 
justly deserves. On the east lies Nebraska and Kansas; on the south is Texas, and 
on the west now comes Utah — all with medical schools in big cities. They are all 
behind their state schools. Colorado needs to swing into line, and with the just 
support of her citizens, the greatest medical school of the vast and growing West 
shall nestle among the glorious old foothills at Boulder. 

"Nuf said." Watch us grow and join hands in building up the Colorado 
School of Medicine, which is but yet in its infancy, an institution which her sons love 
and cherish, and which her rivals in sister states must recognize and honor. F. 



The University Hospital is farthest removed from the campus o,f any of the 
buildings, and stands about 300 feet northeast of the Engineering building. When 
you come to see us — no, not us, for the head nurse does not allow that — but when 
you come to see any of the patients, these simple directions may be of use: Follow 
the walks provided as far as the Engineers' domain — beyond that do the best you can. 
Sometimes you will plow through dust, sometimes wallow in mud, even swimming is 
sometimes practicable. Seventeenth street offers as difficult an avenue of approach, 
only, more so.- 

When the present hospital building was erected some ten years_ ago all the 
patients entrusted to our care could be counted on th» fingers of one hand. This 
year, however, all of the rooms, as well as the wards, have been filled most of the 
time. Formerly one roof was large enough to shelter nurses, patients and help. 
Within the past year a nearby cottage has been remodeled and furnishe'd, affording 
a pleasant and comfortable home for the nurses. ' The numbet of patients lias in- 
creased so rapidly that in all probability an addition as large as the present building 
will have to be added in the spring. 

Under the direction of Miss Mcintosh, the head nurse, we are shifted about 
from one compartment to another, until during the three years each of us has gone 
the rounds — private room service, night duty, day duty, duty in the men's ward, 
duty in the women's ward, and finally duty in the sterilizing rooms. Sometimes dur- 
ing the shifting process we are promoted (?) to the kitchen for a few weeks and, 
besides, each of us undergoes a few months' training in the operating room. The 
nu*rses taking this course at present are: Miss Mcintosh, who has just succeeded 
Miss Stevens as head nurse; Miss Robertson, Miss Dabney, Miss Robbins, Miss 
Boeck, Miss Waters, Miss Lyons, Miss Steele, Miss Lathrop, Miss Sandberg and 
Miss Roberts. That is the roll call. It is a little longer than it was last year, and 
in all probability it will be still longer next year, as this department is keeping pace 
with the rapid advance of the University. This year has given us our cottage 
home — next year will give us the hospital addition and the bert paid interneship in the 
state will be open to applicants. While mentioning improvements we must not over- 
look the fire department, which is just now being installed. At present there is 
much discussion as to whom we shall elect to the important position of fire chief, but 
the real point of rivalry^is who shall be the one to turn on the water. One of the 
most important improvements has been the remodeling of one of the largest private 


rooms. This has been amply equipped as a laboratory and gives us a place to lock 
up the interne if he proves too numerous. 

If what I have written furnishes any notion of our surroundings, our growth 
and our improvements, I part with it gladly, but it has not given any idea of the 
Training School as a department of the University. Indeed we sometimes wonder 
what relation we do bear to the University, or if there is any recognized relation at 
all. Especially is this true when some outsider exclaims, "Why, is the hospital a 
part of the University?" "Does the University support a Training School?" The 
only reply we can make is, "If you were being trained as much of the time as we 
are you would not have time to advertise or go into society, either." We are in 
doubt as to our precise rank as a school. We do ten hours of work each day — 
"shopwork," as the engineers call it — then we have at least one class a day under the 
professors of the Medical School. The line of work is about the same as that pur- 
sued by a medical student. Our entrance requirements are only a little less ad- 
vanced than for other departments and when you recall the fact that ours is a three- 
year course maybe you will acknowledge that we are as much entitled to our diplomas 
as are the law students. Why do we not graduate with other seniors? 

The creator of the "Phillistine" says, "Happy lives make poor biographies." 
If he knows anything about nurses' training schools he will admit that our busy, 
routine lives lend themselves but poorly to history. 

We are still too young to boast of great numbers of alumnae, but the list is long 
enough to establish one fact at least and that is all sufficient ; our graduates are busy 
and in this day and age that means they are competent. We feel certain that were 
it possible to assemble all those who have left the Training School before us they 
would rejoice in our increasing strength and numbers. They would regard with 
pleasure our progress ever in full pace with a growing University. More than all 
this they would clasp hands with us when we say, that if a girl has a taste for this 
Florence Nightingale profession, there is no place on earth where she can find 
better practical training for such a life than in the Training School for Nurses of 
the University of Colorado. 




2 1 

Senior Medics 


This is the bachelor class of the Medical School, at least it is the only class so 
far as we know which could not boast a married man at graduation ; however, that 
great day is yet a little more than three months off, and it is said that one cannot 
tell what a day may bring forth ; if this be true we dare not stretch our prophetic 
powers to predict what will or will not come to pass in three and a quarter months, 
especially as some of the men already stand on the cliff just this side of matrimony 
and no one can tell what moment some uncertain movement may hurl them into that 
great abyss. 

This is just speaking of men, and a class is not necessarily composed of men 
only, for there is a possibility that there may be women, in fact it has been rumored 
about that there are in this very class pictures from life's other side. This is indeed 
a dramatic class for it has a college widow all its own — more than one? No. What 
of the other or others? for pictures is plural. Well, it belongs to the other sub- 
division. These do not seem to be any better off than the rest of the class; but, 
you know, things are not always what they seem, even such things as these. 

Class spirit is a characteristic of classes in general, but this class is the excep- 
tion to prove the rule; for it possesses no such commodity. The members cannot 
agree upon anything as touching the class. In fact, if the class had spread before 
them a sumptuous repast, and were all hungry as bears and nothing to do but sit 
down and eat it is doubtful if they could agree to seat themselves and partake. Nor 
do we feel that this condition bodes ill to the class, for where there are differences of 
opinion there is investigation, and where there is investigation there is evolved enlight- 
enment, therefore it is believed that this class will some day open the eyes of the 
world, else put them out. They will surely make their mark — upon man, or the 
cemetery, or both. 

Certainly all classes have their misfortunes and this one is not an exception as 
is proved by the fact that Dr. Peebles became a member of the faculty before it 
graduated. In fact, it was asked one day in faculty session, "What is the bummest 
class of people on earth?" and the propounder of the question wist not that he was 
striking so close home, for Dr. Peebles answered, "The senior medics of the U. 
of C." "Woe be unto them." 

The first man in the class, that is, alphabetically at least, is Barrows. He is 
the only manly looking man in the class. He is the only one who can, or at least 
the only man who does, wear a mustache. 


Garcia is the man who always sees the bright side of life. 
Dr. Arneill (calling the roll) : Mrs. Miller? Where's Mrs. Miller? 
Student: She's taking the history of a case. 
Dr. Arneill: Oram? Where's Oram? 
Student: He's taking the history, too. 
Dr. Arneill: Does that necessarily follow? 
Student: Yes, Oram necessarily follows. 

Conundrum. — Who never attends the theatre, yet sees the "College Widow" 
often? Answer. — Oram. 

Walker is the class orator and a person of no little learning. He is now a 
mere boy. What will he be when he is grown up? His voice is very gentle. 
When he talks at the medical building on the campus he disturbs the county court. 
He has been arrested for disturbing the peace, but no case could be made because 
it is impossible for him to disturb it any less. It has been suggested that he keep 
his mouth shut when he talks, but he can't do it. He insists that he can raise, sport 
and support a mustache, but no one will believe him. 

A Foxy man has somehow stolen into the class, but just how nobody knows. 
He is truly a pet and loved by all. 

Of the ten men there is only one Truman. Some one has alluded to Truman's 
six feet of human meat, but that does not fully express it; for he measures six feet 
two, in the shade, when there is sufficient shade to cover him. Upon graduation he 
engages with the electric light and telephone companies because he can arm the poles 
without climbing them. 

Oh! where is class '08? 

Are they up to the sky? 
Aye. Others there can go. 

'Em? Catch 'em? You can try.

Time in her ever-changing course has reduced the class of '09 in numbers 
until only a dozen remains. They who are now left hope some day to call the 
U. of C. their alma mater. A casual glance at the class presents nothing char- 
acteristic. No Coons, Japs, Mexicans, Swedes or married people making up its 
personnel. Yet is not a class without a history worth writing. That it has lived 
and breathed and boasted for the Colorado School of Medicine is a distinction that 
it wishes to claim. With the fond hope that it may ever stand for high ideals of 
scholarship and genuine Christian principles — qualities which make medicine the 
noblest of the professions — its further mention as a class is left for the Coloradoan 
of 1910. 

Dr. W. to Mr. Schwer: "What would you give to your patients for alspecia 

(baldness) ? 

Mr. Schwer: "Why, wash their heads, keep clean and use alcohol." 

Dr. W. : "Well, now, if your patients were so inclined they might use the 

alcohol as a beverage instead of as a hair wash." 

Dr. C. (describing an operation) : "The cut surfaces will gradually draw 
together just as a young lady and a young man sitting side by side have a tendency 
to do." 

Immediate movement on the part of the young lady in the front row, away from 
her adjacent classmate.

It had been a long operation and Dr. Giffin wanted to change the position of 
his chair. "Move it west," he said to the nurse. 

The nurse to the east of him moved it toward herself. 
"West, west," he said with slight asperity. 
The nurse slowly moved it toward the west. 



He stands at the head of his class — in order 
of alphabetical naming. "Casty" is well known 
throughout the entire 'Varsity as a good fellow, 
and especially in musical and social circles. To 
him medicine is just a matter of course — not 
anything to think seriously about — so he goes 
his way pleasantly, thanking the fates that the 
required attendance is not over 80 per cent. 


"Little Fish." He thinks well of his class, 
and as another junior says — of himself. Con- 
tinuing this junior says — of him. He is a 
booster for the medical school and a good fellow 
to be with. A professional bluffer and hot-air 
shooter. He is, nevertheless, the most practical 
man in his class. Although a Mormon, he seems 
content with "just one girl." 


"Big Fisch" is one of the most conspicuous 
men in the class. He has a manly bearing, is 
good natured, has the respect of his instructors 
and is liked by all the Sorority girls. He has 
been with the class from the first and has stayed 
by it, too. 



"Dr. Mary" and Rose T. Studley ("Dr. 
Rose"), are two girls who have had a hard row 
to hoe (a course in medicine), but who have 
won the respect and admiration of every one in 

the school. Be it said to their credit that they 
are always ladies, know their place as girls, 
and are not gifted with the continual unreserved 
"butt in" spirit that characterizes some of our 
"co-ed" medics. 

"Wiley" is a junior, who is practical, and 
one who knows his theoretical work. He is al- 
ways polite and gentlemanly. Though an aris- 
tocrat and with steadfast faith in the future of 
Wiley Jones he is not, we believe, immune to 
the lesson that the humble and rugged path of 
"the doctor" has in store for him. 


"Oom Paul" or "Red," as he is familiarly 
called, is a beautiful example of a "grind." 
Still he is not a complete book-worm to the ex- 
clusion of practical clinical work. His grades 
are always the highest, but he works too hard. 
He can always be depended upon for any 
amount of work, but he has yet to learn that a 
"live scrub" is better than a "dead star." 



Named after John L. Sullivan — disappoint- 
ed his parents in his physical stature — but more 
than made good from a mental standpoint. Silk 
worms, blood work and nervous diseases are his 
specialties and he promises a greater future along 
these lines than his namesake did under the Mar- 
quis of Queensbury rules. 


"Honest John" is in a class all by himself. 
He is a good thinker, a clear speaker and an 
earnest student. It is said that his grandfather 
and Abe Lincoln were chums, and John promises 
to be not unlike the great emancipator. 


"Battle Creek," appropriately styled "the 
man behind," is a fellow who knows his work 
and knows that he knows it. He talks much — 
being interested in the sound of his own voice. 
He has never been seen with a girl, and says he 
does not intend to accept any "Leap Year"

Sophomore Medics 


One year ago the class of ' I started on their voyage over the turbulent sea of 
medicine with a crew of twelve. Today only seven remain on deck to answer to 
Dr. Whitman's roll call. Characterized by all that is noble and honorable we stand 
as one man. We are one in ideas, aspirations and scholarship. 

The individual elements which make up this organization are all different. 
Peculiarities abound everywhere among us. Come to a recitation and view a spec- 
tacle you never saw before. Look upon a class of students, every one gentlemen 
and scholars. You will find among us representatives of every tribe and nation, 
democrats and fussers. 

Not given to common things that so many dote over, we never elected officers 
or exposed our countenances to the photographer's glass optic. We don't have time 
for such frivolities. We have among us a master of arts and a man with not so 
much as a high school diploma. We have a baseball shark and a musician, a 
ladies' man and a gentleman. And we are delighted to say that our class contains 
no females. But we think Dr. Trovillion hit the bull's eye when he asked Argall, 
"Isn't Willard Hills a little off in the head?" 

"Billie" Wells and "Useless" Moore sought refuge from last year's strenuous 
life in matrimony. "Brandy" and Frank went to Denver. 

We have no newcomers but Mac and Fuzz, from that noble gang in whose 
boot tracks we are following (a long ways off) drop into an occasional class. 

Leading lives of purity and holiness and attending to the needs of suffering 
mankind we approach closer and closer to the goal for which we are striving, and 
hope to attain the degree Doctor of Medicine "with all the rights and honors per- 
taining thereunto." 

We have talked a little and said less. We have poorly portrayed ourselves 
and yet — words count for nothing in that long struggle for the elevation of suffer- 
ing manhood where perseverance, honesty and truth count for so much.

On the prairies of South America there grows a flower that always inclines in 
the same direction. If a traveler loses his way and has neither compass nor chart, 
by turning to this flower he will find a guide on which he can implicitly rely; for 
no matter how the rains descend or the winds blow, it's leaves point to the North. 
So it is with us, the Class of 1911, whose purposes are so well known, whose aims 
are so constant, that no matter what difficulties we may encounter, or what opposi- 
tion we may meet, our destination will surely be apparent. We may be delayed 
by head winds and counter currents, but we will always head for the port and steer 
straight for the harbor. You know whatever may happen to a man of this stamp, 
even though the sails may be swept away and his masts stripped to the deck, 
though he may be wrecked by the storms of life, the needle of his compass will 
still point to the North Star of his hope. Whatever comes, his life will not be pur- 
poseless. Even a wreck that makes its port is a greater success than a full-rigged 
ship with all its sails flying, with every mast and rope intact, which merely drifts 
into an accidental harbor. Yet let us not look on the dark side of life and think 
of the difficulties we may encounter, but turn to the bright and happy times we are 
yet to have in the Medical School, especially in the dissecting room. 

If you should wish to go any Place in the Anatomy Building you would be 
Cunningly Schoen through by a Wiggin with a Ham at her side. On entering 
you will notice the different types of Workmen, some Swedes, Mexicans, Japs, 
Negroes, and also to your surprise you will find some women among them. In the 
Southeast corner of the room Smith is working on the Palmer surface of his face. 
A conversation is carried on by those in the Southwest corner. Canon City, Crip- 
ple Creek, Trinidad, have their representatives, and the three towns are fully dis- 

From another spot Tiffin speaks: 

"You can Lamme if I don't get at least a hundred in Chemistry." 

Edgar shouts, "He can get it, Cantey?"

C olorado Athletics 

When Wirt McCarthy, sporting editor of the "Denver Times," presented the 
gold watch fobs at the Athletic Smoker, he made a statement that went far towards 
banishing the bitter thought of narrow defeats upon the football field last fall. 

"Your record for clean sports is such a one as a man in my position can ap- 
preciate. At all times reports come to me of the ineligibility of college players, 
but not a voice — not a whisper — has ever been raised against the purity and cleanli- 
ness of athletics in the University of Colorado." 

When we consider the statement, and the position of the man from whence 
it proceeds, we may well feel proud of our athletic teams, and rightly congratulate 
ourselves upon the fact that, though we have lost some hard-fought fights upon the 
gridiron, we have in all cases put forth amateur University teams, not trained 
athletes who are in school chiefly for athletics, and incidentally, perhaps, for an 

The University of Colorado has not neglected any opportunity of encouraging 
honorable athletics, but she has never stooped to methods which countenance victory 
at any cost. The genuine "moral victory," so much derided, has been deemed 
worthier than the victory at all hazards.. Yet, notwithstanding the insistence upon 
bona fide athletics, we won the state track, basket ball, and baseball championship 
in 1907, and in the football season this last fall we put forth a football team which, 
though erratic, as most teams playing under the new rules, nevertheless administered 
to Utah a crushing defeat, and lost to the Mines Thanksgiving Day only by the 
narrow margin of one point. 

The baseball season of 1907 was as successful as could have been hoped for; 
not a single inter-collegiate game was lost. No inter-stale games were played, but 
no doubt the state schools of Kansas and Nebraska would have found Colorado 
a foe to be reckoned upon. 

Track athletics were almost as successful, and, barring a defeat at Utah which 
might be explained, were explanations in order, the track team passed through the 
season without a blot upon its record. 

Basket ball has been added to the list of University athletics interests, and thus 
far the basket ball teams have been a credit to the institution. 

Among the women, athletics are in a thriving condition. Inter-school contests, 
are not encouraged, but the inter-class basket ball games have been very lively, and 
the regular gymnasium work has afforded every young lady the opportunity of sup- 
plementing her studies with healthful exercise. 

Altogether, when we consider the athletic situation, there is much to be proud 
of in the past and much to be hoped for in the future. Defeat, it is true, has come 
to us occasionally, but there is reason to believe that Colorado will in the near future 
outstrip her rivals in this state as surely as Michigan, Nebraska and other state 
institution have outstripped their respective rivals within the borders of the states from 
which they derive their support.

Once again the football championship pennant has faded away before our 
defeat-dimmed eyes, to rest in the halls of the School of Mines. Once again, de- 
luded by the promise of excellent material, we reared our gilded hopes on the pro- 
vetbial foundation of sand, thinking it granite. Once again, through some inex- 
plicable cause, the students have been obliged to grasp hopefully, even expectantly, 
for the last faint gleam of encouragement, and after attaining to the object of their 
frantic search, have found it to be discouragement and miserable despair. 

Erratic playing constituted the program for the entire season, and no ex- 
planation seems to be ready with those who make it their sole aim in college to 
explain, for the on-days and off-days, for the brilliancies and the blots which al- 
ternately gild and darken the pages of the football history of the nineteen-hundred- 
:even team. 

1 he outlook for the season was exceedingly bright. Plenty of material and 
a good coaching staff gave promise of a season of victories. The first blow which 
the squad received was the disqualification of Roller, Bowler and Mills, which, 
although expected, was nevertheless somewhat of a shock. 

In the first college game of the season the Varsity team played in unusual 
early season form, and by the clever execution of deluding, intricately-working for- 
mations and plays, the Methodist team of Denver University was defeated on 
October 5th by the score of 29 to 4. The game was full of good team work with 
an occasional spectacular individual run. 

Overconfident, the team came forth on Gamble Field, October 19, and 
barely escaped defeat at the hands of the lucky Aggies. As the Hector of old, the 
Varsity, forsaken by their gods, struggled stupidly, until the gods, ashamed for the 


very soipidity of the play, intervened, and cast the die in favor of the listless de- 
Fenders of the Silver and the Gold, and set the score at I 7 to I 3. I he Aggie 
men by constant dispute, caused a disagreeable atmosphere to pervade throughout 
the campus, and by walking off the field at one time, were successful in obtaining 
the forfeit of a touch-down by Coach Castleman, against the student sentiment, so 
that the play might continue. 

On October 26th the Varsity played the University of Nebraska to a standstill, 
and although the score of 22 to 8 in favor of the opponents would not indicate it, 
in fcotball the Varsity broke even with the Cornhuskers. But as to luck — the 
hoodoo still hovered around the U. of C. colors, and, as a consequence, Nebraska 
captured all of the fluke points which usually are at least evenly divided. Colorado 
played the fighting "hike" game, and kept the opponents more than interested all 
of the time. 

A game scheduled with the University of Wyoming was canceled at their re- 
quest, after the defeat which they received at the hands of the Miners. 

The game of November 9th is the game which will long be remembered a; 
the rrost heart-rending contest cf the season. Eleven men representing the Univer- 
sity of Colorado, backed by several hundied loyal students, went to Colorado 
Springs and were defeated by the team of Colorado College, 1 to 0. Our men 
marched on the field, but it was not our team. All of the men played a loose and 
careless game. It can be said that "a" University of Colorado team was defeated 
by C. C, but it was not "the" U. of C. team. 

After the stinging defeat by C. C. the Varsity team took a brace and on the 
next Saturday took the team of the University of Utah into camp by the score of 
24 to 10. The Varsity worked listlessly during the first half but in the second half 
took a brace and scored all of their points during that live session. With plenty 
of ginger infused by Folsom's "talk" between halves, the Varsity carried the Mor- 
mons back with a resistless assault that brought easy victory out of seeming defeat. 

After the Utah game, all looked restlessly forward to Thanksgiving Day. 
The great morning dawned at last and Boulder was depopulated by the Denver- 
going crowd. The Mines defeated the Varsity by a score of 5 to 4. That is 
enough, for the story is a long one. How the students' hearts rose to their throats — 
then fell in dismay, time and again as the Varsity drew down into the danger 
zone near the Miners line, only to miss an attempted goal, or to be held by the des- 
perately resisting Miners; how the Varsity had the game won, but did not em- 
brace the opportunity; and fiinally how the Miners, triumphant, gloried m the vic- 
tory and their well-earned praise. 

Ah — well, it is all over and past. Even the recollection of the victories and 
defeats are concealed in the haze of half-forgotten memories. The exultant joy 
of victory and the tormenting sting of defeat are so evenly blended as we recall the 
rous ng contests, that we settle back in our easy chairs and say, "Oh, well, it will 
all be the same to me in a few years. I will not have remembered." It is too 
true, you may forget, but our opponents, the victors; think you they will ever forget? 

One consolation remains to which men in sorrow may always fly — hope. We 
may hope for the future and dream of the time when the defeats of today may be 
forgotten under the exhilaration of flower-garlanded success, but never can we, 
can you, can I, in future years, look back to the "moral victories" of the season 
of nineteen hundred and seven and say, "It was a success."

1 hanksgiving day afternoon, 1907, beheld a gridiron struggle, the like of 
which has never been witnessed in this state before. Long had preparations been 
in progress for the Titanic battle and long had the men of the State University 
and the upholders of the honor of the Silver and Blue been fitting themselves for 
the crucial test of the year. Student bodies in both institutions had done their 
utmost to arouse spirit to a fever heat. And on that memorable day when the 
hosts of Colorado, a thousand strong swept all Denver before them, it was evi- 
dent that the State men had come to the capitol city to win. All day long the 
slogans of the Silver and Gold thundered across .the city which was gowned in hol- 
iday attire and the colors of Colorado were to be seen everywhere, in the hotels, on 
the street cars and up and down the streets. 

In the afternoon Broadway Park presented a sight overwhelming, and one 
not to be forgotten. Not only the regular grandstands were packed to overflow- 
ing, but the temporarily erected bleechers were filled and the sidelines were 
crowded with madly cheering students. For an hour before the whistle blew for 
the beginning of the contest, the cheers of the rival schools rolled back and forth 
across the gridiron with inspiring regularity. At 2:45 o'clock the men of the 
Mines came on the field and the sharp slogans of the Silver and Blue were hurled 
across the field to the Colorado stands. Not two minutes later the State team 
trotted on the gridiron and there followed an exhibition of spirit which has never 
been surpassed in the West. 

The vast majority of the people in the stands bore the Silver and Gold of 
the State University and the instant Captain Farnsworth jumped over the ropes the 
stands were a wildly waving mass of Silver and Gold. Again and again the deep 
long cheers of Colorado boomed back and forth in a continuous thundering roll and 
the yells of the Silver and Blue were lost in the echo. 

Fhe story of that struggle is too deeply engraven in the heart of every son of 
Colorado to demand other than brief telling here. It is well remembered how time 
and again Colorado forced the oval under the very shadow of the Mines posts, only 
to be penalized when victory was at hand; how Nordenholt was sent directly 
through the line from the Colorado 25-yard line to a touch-down; how little Stir- 
rett, with the ball on the Mines 30-yard line, took a goal from placement, and how, 
when Colorado was making a final and successful rally to rush the ball over the 
Mines line, the whistle blew and the game was at an end. The score remained 
where it stood at the end of the first half, 5 — 4. But though the game was lost,' 
the contest of Thanksgiving Day, 1907, will go down in the football annals of the 
West as one evidencing a grand and heroic struggle by the defenders of the Sil- 
ver and Gold and of loyalty and spirit unsurpassed by the sons of Colorado.

"Freshmen versus Sophomores. The most scientific exhibition of football on 
Gamble Field since its construction." Thus read the posters of the game and 
thus was the game. 

The fumbles and loose plays were so evenly divided that it was a very in- 
teresting affair to watch. In the first part of the first half the teams held each 
other in the middle of the field. Then the Sophs kicked the ball, but it was blocked 
by the first year men and sent over the goal line. After some dispute as to the 
legality of the goal, the ball was placed between the posts and the score was 
6 to in favor of the Freshmen. The rest of the half better ball was played by 
both teams and no score was made. After a short, forcible talk from Farnworth, 


Weiner and Coffin the teams came on the field with their fighting blood up. 
With the exception of the punting the ball was kept pretty well in the middle of 
the field. No score was made in the second half. For the Freshies, those that 
showed up particularly well were. Lines, in his end runs and good tackling; Hall, 
on his quick work in getting after the ball; Fawcett, in managing the team, and 
Bicknell for his good kicking. For the Sophs were Hamilton, as left half-back; 
Crowder, as end runner, and Mills, for punting and excellent handling of the

Grit is one of the main standbys of a football team, and the team of the 
silver and gold certainly showed that characteristic when they bucked the team of 
the scarlet and cream on the 26th of October, 1907. Nebraska expected a walk- 
away, but they had all they could do to get away with the long end of the score, 
and after the game the cornhuskers were all willing to take off their hats to the 
sturdy mountaineers. Before the game was three minutes old Nebraska had scored 
ten and Colorado had laid away nothing, but with this score staring them in the 
face, and with more than the probability of a defeat, they fought on and not once 
in the first half were the cornhuskers allowed to make a first down. Colorado's 
forward passes were a source of wonder to the crowd and exasperation to the 
Nebraska team. They could not understand this daring move, much less stop it, 
and they were powerless to make any consistent gams through Colorado's line. 
The whole game was one succession of the following series: Nebraska fails to 
gain in two attempts through Colorado's line and are forced to punt; Colorado 
fumbles punt and Nebraska recovers the ball. Colorado made more ground 
from scrimmage and averaged 6.42 per down while the cornhuskers averaged but 
3. 1 9 yards. Our punts were as good as theirs, but where we failed was in the 
handling and running back of Weller's long spirals. Colorado made first down 
eight times, Nebraska five times. During the early stages of the second half the 
cornhuskers' team plowed through Colorado for thirty yards for a touchdown, 
but from then on there was nothing doing. Instead of Being able to make ground 
they lost it, and our ends would repeatedly hurl their backs to the ground with a 
loss of from three to twenty yards. Stirrett and Weller each made a drop kick 
and the ball bouncing over the fence is all that saved Nebraska from having a 
touchdown scored against them. That Colorado gave Nebraska her hardest game 
of the season, is admitted by all cornhuskers. 


Manager Football Team. 1907 


3Sassdmli Reason of 1907 

The University of Colorado Baseball team of 1907 corrpleted a most success- 
ful season, finally the inter-collegiate championship without losing a single 
game to its opponents. The record of the season's games is not only an indication 
that the team played better baseball than its opponents ; it is also a convincing re- 
minder of the fact that no team representing the University in any branch of ath- 
letics ever displayed more grit, determination and fighting spirit, in the face of 
depressing situations, than the championship baseball team of 1907. 

Before the collegiate schedule was commenced, the team was broken up by 
the disablement, for the entire season, as it turned out, of Silvey Bernard, one of 
the promising pitchers, and the temporary disablement of Captain "Bill" Trudgian. 
Bernard was prevented by an accident in the Pueblo game and subsequent sickness 
from earning his "C" and thus the pitching staff was reduced to two, Wasson and 
Ballinger. Three days before the first collegiate game, Captain Trudgian sustained 
a fractured skull in practice and the hopes of the team for the moment went glim- 
mering. It braced up quickly, however. Todd Reid was pressed into service at 
Short Stop, and the Mines were defeated on their home grounds to the tune of 
9 to 4. Everyone batted viciously and "Touchdown" Moore gained immortal 
fame once again by smashing out a "homer." 

The never-say-die spirit was in evidence straight through the season, and 
finally burst bounds in the long postponed Colorado College game, when the Tigers, 
first frightened by a ninth inning rally, were finally sent howling to the backwoods 
by the shock of a whirlwind finish in the eleventh. And this, too, on their home 

Colorado may be represented in the future by better teams, but never will

%\)t pueblo Crip 

Alter arguing with Manager Bleecker for a week or so, telling him of the 
great possibilities of the financial part of this engagement, he agreed to let us 
go to Pueblo town to play the Inchans. 

We were due to leave at 9:40, Thursday, April 3, over the C. & S. dummy 
line, but arising that morning and seeing what the weather prophet had dealt 
out to us, the manager said, "wait a m nute until I call Pueblo." 

The manager did call Pueblo, there it was snowing, and no encouragement 
was offered us to visit the smoky city. 

Being anxious for a trip south, the manager called Pueblo again at 3:15 
p. m. and report was more favorable. It had stopped snowing and the sun was 
showing through the smoke. 

1 his was sufficient. We got together in three-fourths of an hour, tied on 
our hats and boarded the 4 o'clock train, arriving in Denver in time to connect 
with the south bound Santa Fe, after indulging in "food and drink" at the Oxford. 

Nothing of importance happened until we left Colorado Springs. Somehow 
or other Pryor found a citizen of a very bellicose nature who had a violin and 
was well supplied with a goodly amount of Scotch fire-water. This man with 
the violin insisted on standing, and rendering his selections under the direction of 
Pryor, his discoverer, who would penodxally collect an offering from the atten- 
tive listeners. 

Finally the fire water conquered him and as we stepped off the train at 
4th street, in the smoky city, we saw our friend stacked up in one of the vesti- 

Now we were in search for a hotel. "Turk" Moore said he knew the best 
and least expensive place in town, so we fell in line and followed him, arrived 
there and gave the management of the hotel a chance to look us over, (which 
we ought not to have done) he replied that he guessed the house was full at 
the same time looking across the lobby at Trudgian and Garst. We proceeded 
to the Grand hotel. Here we were accommodated and permitted to drop our 
suit cases while rooms were allotted us. 

I will not tell you what we did the next day, but anyway, we played ball 
with the Indians and they had to keep their eyes open all the time for the team 
played ball every minute of the game. This exhibition was witnessed by about 
seventy-five people. 

1 hat night we all went to bed at 8 o'clock, sleeping on a determination to 
win next day's game. 

Having had a good night's rest, we felt able to defeat any team that had 
ever seen a baseball, but the same story as that of the day preceding had to be told. 

Peeling somewhat disheartened over the outcome of our trip and the man- 
ager's rece pts of the games, it naturally put us in a careless and afterwards happy 

We didn't go to bed at 8 o'clock Saturday night, as some of the fellows had 
some shopping to do, which they afterwards did in good style. Tired of wandering, 
the prodigals of W. F. Bleeker packed their belongings and caught the first 
train going north. Everybody paid for his own lunch at Colorado Springs, because 
the manager had no reason to butt in and object. 

Arriving in Boulder at 5:10 Sunday, everybody, including the manager, 
stole around the back streets to their rooms, and when asked where they had 
been, replied with the old chapel excuse, "Out of town on business." G. A. P.

1 he season of 1907 opened in promising fashion. Early in January scantily- 
clad athletes could be seen jogging along the country roads getting into shape for the 
spnng meets. The cross-country runs between the Freshmen and the Sophomores, 
held in March, was the first important event of the season and served to bring out a 
gcod deal of promising rr.a^e.ial. ^hen the inter-schcol meet came off at the end 
of March, the track team was well advanced into its seasons training. 

The first dual meet of the season, held April 27 with the School of Mines, 
served to show the ability of the Varsity squad, but on account of the bad weather 
was otherwise of very little importance. 

The meet with Utah was the only contest held outside of the state. Had the 
Varsity entered a full team at Salt Lake, and had not the Mormons insisted on 
leaving out certain events the result might have been different. But it is useless to 
say what might have happened. Utah certainly had a stronger team than Colorado, 
especially in the short distances, and the fact remains that we were badly beaten. 

The greatest event of the season was the Invitation Inter-Collegiate Meet, 
held in Boulder May I 8th. Every man representing the Varsity that day outdid 
himself to win laurels for the Silver and Gold. Grit, determination and hard train- 
ing won the day for Colorado. 

The A. A. U. Meet, held in Denver the Saturday following, was rather a 
farce. Colorado won easily as the other schools in the state were only partially 
represented. It is to be hoped that the next A. A. U. will be more of a success. 

The splendid work of Capla n Pratt during the season deserves special men- 
tion. Both in his individual work and in his work with the team Pratt showed him- 
self a thorough athlete and sportsman. Having held the half mile record for over 
three years, he was able last year to maintain it in spite of fierce rivalry and to leave 
the team still holding his laurels.

Manager Basket Ball Team 

In the championship game between 
Indiana and Purdue the attendance reach- 
ed to the 2,000 mark. This surely is an 
indication that basket ball is the prevail- 
ing and recognized winter sport among the 
leading universities of the country. Yet 
the largest attendance at any game this 
season at the U. of C, was 200. Surely 
there is some underlying cause for this 
lack of interest. Although the interest on 
the part of the supporters of the team was 
lacking, added enthusiasm was shown by 
the candidates for the team, there being 
between 30 and 40 aspirants for the po- 
sitions on the Varsity five. The season 
opened by playing the famous Nome, 
Alaska, team, and although the Varsity 
lost, the defeat was probably due to the 
fact that the regulars were only used the last half, on the account of an intercol- 
legiate game which was to be played the next night. 

Immediately following the Nome game the team left for a trip through 
Northern Colorado and Eastern Wyoming, playing five games and winning four. 
During this trip the five had the honor of being the first college team to participate 
in an athletic contest on the University of Wyoming gymnasium floor. The mem- 
bers of the team greatly enjoyed the trip, receiving royal treatment in every city 
in which they played. The next game was played at Denver against the Denver 
University, they winning. This is the first athletic victory the Methodists ever won 
over Colorado, but the team had sweet revenge by tripling the score when the re- 
turn game was played. On February 1 st the Varsity clashed with Muscatine, 
Iowa, and although defeated, the quintet made a very creditable showing, in view of 
the fact that the Muscatine aggregation are considered champions of the U. S. 

The following Friday the Varsity evened matters by doubling the score on 
the Aggies. The next four games were used as a means of advertising the Uni- 
versity, by playing the following high schools: Idaho Springs, Georgetown, 
Greeley, and Cheyenne. 

Receptions and dances were given the team at each of these cities, the "boys 
being treated in a manner highly complimentary to their entertainers. 

This is a departure from the usual custom of making up the schedule, and 
the results of so doing, in the way of new students, will be watched with interest. 
The last two games were played with the Mines, one at Boulder and one at 
Golden. The U. of C. lost the one at Boulder, thereby releasing all claim on 
the championship which it held last season. The season, as one of victories, was 
not very successful, but bearing in mind the reputation we have gained, the last 
few years, in all branches of athletics, for moral victories we ought to be content 
with the results of the basket ball season of 1907-08.

President Women's Athletic 


ontrn b Athbttra 

Truly enthusiastic are the young women of the university in athletics. The 
opportunities afforded this year are greater than those of preceding years. Gym- 
nasium work under Miss Stearns is compulsory, three times a week for Freshmen 
and a marked increase in interest is noticeable among the Freshmen girls. 

The new Engineering shops now repose upon the girls' hockey field, but tennis, 
gymnasium work and particularly basket ball are flourishing. Miss Margaret 
Johnson, a medical student is physical examiner again this year. 

The Woman's Athletic association has been reorganized with Miss Helen 
Waltemeyer as president. 

The association has money on hand and expects to purchase sweaters for 
the basketball team. 

'J is 




Mr. Castleman and Mr. Harry Aurand coach the basketball team. Basket- 
ball takes the lead among the women's sports and contrary to the usual state of 
affairs, a number of upper classmen are strong supporters, and there is an average 
number of eighteen girls at practice. 

The basketball line-up is a follows: 

Running Center Helen Pierce, Capt. 

Standing Center Alta Stevens 

Forward Donny MacDonald 

Forward Helen Waltemeyer 

Guard Faye MacDonald

The fourth annual 'Varsity Smoker was held in the Curran Opera House the 
evening of February 1 Oth. The house was well filled with students and loyal 
town supporters of the University of Colorado. The program was, as usual, a 
grand success, several new and highly entertaining features being introduced. 

After a few yells and university songs the scrap iron quintette, composed of 
Van Sant, Jones, Adams, Hayt and Crowder, sang and were encored again and 
again. The athletic part of the program started with a wrestling match between the 
Millard twins. After a clever burlesque while preparing to enter the ring, they put 
up the best bout they have ever engaged in, each securing one fall. 

Referee Fonda then introduced "Battling'' Robinson and "Foggy" Reid, who 
went two rounds to a draw. "Jawn" O'Brien and "Heine" Barr took part in a 
strap scrap with Bowler and Weiner as their respective seconds. Barr received the 
decision, but the referee stated that "Heine" got hit mighty hard the last time. 
"Bull" Stirrett and Ralph Carr boxed three fast rounds to a draw and then the 
first annual Cane Spree between the two lower classes took place. The lightweight 
bout between Randolph and Lines resulted in a tie. The Freshmen won the middle- 
weight go, Mathews taking the cain away from Gilligan. Means succeeded in 
tieing the contest for the Sophs when he tore the cain from O'Brien in the heavy- 
weight match. To decide the spree another bout was held in which Judelovitz of 
the Freshmen won from Morrison of the Sophomores. 


Murray Reid and Harry Curtis entertained the crowd with a wrestling match 
and Art Wilson showed himself cleverer than Roy Roberts in the last boxing bout on 
the program. 

The loving cup donated by the faculty to the class winning the annual track 
meet, was presented by Harry Curtis to Reed Morrill of the Sophomore class. 
Coach Castleman presented the cup given by A. G. Spalding & Co. to the State 
Baseball Champions of 1907 to Captain Snyder of this year's team. Percy Foole 
scored his usual success with his original songs and received as many encores as he 
would stand for. 

Wirt McCarthy, of the Denver Times, presented the gold footballs to the men 
of the first team. "Pesky" Garwood made a hearty appeal for the men of the 
second team and showed in his remarks while presenting them with their jerseys 
that they were appreciated for their hard work in developing the first team. 

In appreciation of his work on the scrubs a cup was presented to Shepherd by 
Captain Farnworth. This cup was the gift of the coach and some of the players 
to a man who by his faithful trying for five years, has shown what Colorado spirit 
is and always should be. 

The men who received the gold footballs were : 

N. C. Farnworth (Capt., 1907) W. Randolph

May eleventh, nineteen hundred and seven will always remain a bright spot 
in the memory of all those who witnessed and took part in the events of that day. 
Nothing happened from dawn till sunset to spoil the perfect pleasure of the Univer- 
sity's visitors. Early in the morn ng heavily laden special trains began to arrive 
and to pant forth gaily colored streams of laughing high school students. All noon 
the merry crowd lunched upon the grass, for on high school day, "Keep off the 
grass" signs are lost from sight and thought. In the afternoon one of the most 
brilliant interscholastic track and field meets ever held in Colorado took place on 
Gamble field. The afternoon was hot, the track hard and fast, the contestants 
determined and excited, and the grand stands and all other available places crowded 
to the utmost limit. 

Nature seemed to smile upon the events of that day. No rain, no wind, not 
even a cloud arose to spoil its happy progress. So great was the crowd in the grand 
stands that the railing broke during the excitement of the hundred yard dash 
Three state high school records were broken, and all events proved close and 

It was a tired but happy crowd of high school students that sped away that 
evening on their trains to tell their folks at home of one of the greatest high school 
days that they had ever seen.

They scribble early, they scribble late, 

1 'hey scribble of love and joy and hate, 

They scribble because their hearts are glad, 

They scribble because their hearts are sad. 

But even in their humblest line 

May there glow a sparl? of the fire Divine. 

Those were the words with which Dean Hellems launched our club upon the 
stormy sea of University literary life. Scribble is all we do or make any pretense 
of doing. A few earnest students are we who work for the "joy of the working,'' 
and find the work is its own reward. At the Scribbler's we write and read and 
talk. And they are all good things — writing, reading and talking. So we think, at 
least, and facts would seem to bear us out, for in our membership were numbered 
many who are accomplishing things in the literary work of the University. And some 
of the things we write are really "worth while." We even think at times that the 
"spark Divine" grows very bright. But whether they are good or exceedingly bad, 
the things we write, matters not to us, for we enjoy it and so we scribble, scribble, 


Now let me say there's but one way, 
(Your chances otherwise are slim). 

Unless you git in Richards Lit 
You aren't really in the swim. 

Three years ago the Richards Literary Society made its bow to the University ; 
and during that time its progress has been constant and rapid, until today it occupies 
a place in University affairs second to no other organization, and is without doubt by 
far the best literary society the University has known. 

Although Richards is not a debating society, it was our proud honor to capture 
the trophy cup from the University of Colorado Debating Society in a spirited and 
hard-fought debate held in the University Chapel, December I 1 . We are proud 
of the cup and of the team that won it. Next year we will win it again that it may 
permanently adorn our rooms. 

During the year the Society has held weekly meetings at which the study of 
American literature has been systematically pursued. Nor have we confined our 
work to the exclusive advantage of our own members. By a series of open meetings 
at which talented readers have been presented, the Society has contributed to the 
literary activities of the University at large. 

As a proof of the interest taken by the members is the fact that no one has ever 
failed to take his assigned part in the program of the weekly meetings. But because 
the members of the Society think deep and work hard, their hearts are all the more 
merry. 'Tis said the Society has been known to spend evenings at which the only 
books were dance programs and the intellectual stimulus, punch. 

The Society has always been a loyal supporter of University affairs, and at 
the Kansas debate was the only organization having official representation, occupying 
a double box tastefully decorated with the society's colors, brown and white, and 
with University pennants. Thus we are accomplishing much and propose to accom- 
plish more. And the loyalty that today is making Richards Literary Society a strong 
and helpful organization will in the future make it one of the fondest memories of 
college days.

The University Scientific Society was founded for the purpose of offering to the 
faculty and students of the University and to the interested public, the latest results 
of the scientific work done by the members of the faculty. In 1907, owing to the 
formation of more specialized scientific societies, its character was changed. In 
addition to scientific papers of a popular nature, there are presented papers in the 
broader fields of literature, history, art and travel. It is the intention, in this way, to 
reach and interest a wider public than was possible under the older plan. 


The lack of opportunity for acquiring proficiency in public speaking and 
literary work in general has long been felt amongst engineering students. The 
engineering course at best is not an easy one and there are so many technical subjects 
absolutely necessary as a foundation for a successful career that the engineer has 
time for but a very meagre training in academic work. 

The engineer of the past was considered a mere builder and was not accorded 
the professional status to which his responsibilities, services and achievements legiti- 
mately entitled him. The engineer of today must be, not only a technically trained 
man, but must be one fitted to accept positions requiring the highest executive 
ability, since the companies which are promoting the great engineering projects of 
today find that it is better to have at the heads of their various departments engineers 
rather than men from the business world. Moreover, the engineer of today holds 
a social position which makes it imperative that he be a man of ready address 
and polished manners, fit to move in any circle of the social or business life. 

It is with the hope that the opportunity may be given to the engineering student 
for acquiring some degree of this broader culture that the Engineers' Literary 
society has been organized. 

The society came into existence by the adoption of the constitution on Friday 
evening, January 1 7, 1 908. Officers were elected at the following meeting and 
a short literary program given. Since that time the success of the society has been 
assured, and the interest shown by the students is indicative of the fact that the 
society is meeting a long felt need and will become a strong and useful organization 
in the College of Engineering. 



In this second year of its existence the U. of C. Debating Society has lived 
up to the promise of its initial term. The limit of membership has been raised this 
year and a large waiting list gives added evidence as to the interest in the Society. 

Aside from the debating and literary work, the big feature of the year has 
been the establishment of a Senate. House rules were drawn up and so far as 
possible the procedure of our National Senate has been observed. Bills have been 
presented to the assembly, referred to committees, and, after the usual three read- 
ings, opened to the Senate for debate. This work has been of great practical value 
and has held the interest of the members. 

The Society is making itself felt in its field of activity and will increase its 
influence in the future.

It is true that Cottage Two does look tattered and time-worn, but those who 
have spent days and nights under its old roof find that there is an air about the place, 
which breathes of tradition and of romance. 

There are times when the girls are all gathered together that many happy 

hours are spent, and especially in the evenings when Sylva will play the piano and 

all the girls will stand around and sing college songs, or will sing the favorite verse of 

Clementine which is: . , T . , , , T . , , 

How 1 missed her, now 1 missed her, 

How I missed my Clementine 

'Til I met her little sister, 

Then I forgot my Clementine. 

If a girl is not feeling well Rose is the first to offer assistance by giving one of 
the numerous pills from her medicine case. 

The freshmen have finally realized that they are in duty bound to honor the 
dignity of the upper classmen and give strict observance to the rules which the upper 
classmen have laid down for them. 

The girls of Cottage Two are: Rose Studley, May Baker, Bertha Hallowell, 
Goldie Wilson, Neora Fletcher, Estelle Thill, Sylva Scott and Nina Gratz. 


The wind blew softly through the branches of the old tree at the corner of 
the Cottage. How many times in its hurry had it shaken and twisted the trees so 
vigorously that the big limbs would break and King Klemme would have work 
for another day, trying to patch it up. But this day it talked gently among the 
branches, and I heard it whisper, "Do you know Ruby? Everyone does I guess, 
for she loves everybody." Yes, indeed," the tree answered, "but I don't suppose 
you know our new girls? Well, there is Natalie — she has such pretty, black, 
mischievous eyes and curls that you would love to play with. Nanno isn't at all 
sad, but is of a happy-go-lucky nature and has such a love for "tramps" over 
the carrpus at early dawn. Rachael can be caught sstudying at all hours, but 
she too loves to roam. They all come back though when the triangle rings. Now, 
Edith is so good and true at heart that I know that it shows in her face. You surely 
can tell her. You have often heard Maude playing her very soul into her 
violin. Oh, I have listened to you accompanying her by whistling through my 
branches. Have you heard Ellen singing in the morning with the birds? She's 
so ambitious and works all day just like a busy bee. Mary is there yet and 
just as wicked as ever." 3U 


A little more than ten years ago Mrs. Baker, realizing the need of an organ- 
ization through which the women student of the University might become better 
acquainted, founded the Wowan's League. 

According to the constitution the purpose of the League is to "promote better 
acquaintance among its members, both active and associate, and to bring about 
greater unity and fellowship among the women students of the University of Colo- 
rado, irrespective of department." 

From September to June the Woman's League endeavors to keep this aim in 
view by bringing the girls together now and then for an evening of fun. What 
girl has not laughed till she could laugh no more at the enforced antics of the 
hreshmen at the initiation? What fun it is to guess at the identity of one's ele- 
gant or ferocious partner at the annual mask ball! Then, in order that each girl 
may feel that she has some part in some especial frolic, the girls are divided into 
"groups," according to classes. During the year each of these four groups gives 
a party to all of the women students of the University, and each tries to give a 
party that shall surpass in originality and hilarity the party given by another group. 
I he Charity Ball and the Campus Party, which are also traditional affairs, 
interest the whole University — for the functions of the League are traditionally 
successful. The proceeds of the Calendars, published annually by the League, 
and of the various entertainments increase the loan fund, which, at a very low rate 
of interest, is at the service of the women of the University. 

Th administration of this loan fund, and the planning and management of 
all of the functions of the League, fall to the share of an executive board, consist- 
ing at present of thirteen girls elected by the entire Lague, and an advisory board, 
composed of the President's wife, the Dean of Women and four Faculty women, 
chosen by the executive board. 


During the year 1907-8 the Young Women's Christian Association of the 
University of Colorado has flourished as never before. While this is partially due 
to the impetus of the work of other years, still this has been a period of broadening 
along many lines. We have been specially fortunate in opportunities for contact 
with other associations. 

In August the Western Summer Conference of the Young Women's Christian 
Association met in Colorado for the first time and nearly three hundred girls from 
the states between the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains gathered at 
Cascade from August 23rd to September 3rd. They brought with them many new 
ideas and inspiring aims and we trust they carried away with them as delightful 
memories of us as we have of them. 

The opening of the college year brought with it great activity along both the 
social and religious lines. By a series of teas, formal and informal, and recep- 
tions, the girls became better acquainted than before and the foundations of many 
pleasant friendships were laid. 

The Association, however, has specially emphasized this year the religious 
side of college life and a large amount of success has crowned the efforts of the 
various commitetes. The membership of the Association has reached the high- 
water mark of two hundred and fifty. Two Mission Study and seven Bible Study 
Classes have been organized, in which all the members have shown a very real 

It was with deep sorrow and a very real appreciation of her services that we 
bade "good-bye" to our first General Secretary, Miss Vose. The period of her 
work among the girls in the University of Colorado will always be lovingly remem- 
bered by all those with whom she came in contact. We welcome most heartily 
our new Secretary, Miss Ida Carr, who comes to us from the University of Indiana. 
With her help we hope to build a firm structure upon the foundations of past 
years and to deepen the spiritual life of the entire body of women students.

Every organization that is worth while has its struggles for existence in its 
early days, especially if that organization be one with a moral purpose, and a 
special field of usefulness among college men. It must run the gauntlet of crit- 
icism as to its soundness of base, its purity of purpose, and its practical value in the 
business world. After passing through the test, the Young Men's Christian Asso- 
ciation has emerged unscathed. President Roosevelt said: "I appreciate enor- 
mously the work that your associations are doing among our people quietly, almost 
unmarked, day by day. You are one of the great potent factors for good which 
must be continually built up. What I like about your work is that you mix 
religion with common sense." 

This statement is true only when the individual members of the associations 
do their part faithfully "day by day." Such has been the loyal support of the 
members in the University Association during this year thot to-day it stands proudly 
conscious of the fact that many men have been helped to qualify for the crisis of 
life through its efforts; and that it is closing a year, the most successful in its 

No longer does the college man beware of the religious organization ; he recog- 
nizes its place of usefulness in student life and is more than willing to support it 
morally and financially. At no time in the history of this association has the 
general feeling of good will been so marked as during this past year. Three hun- 
dred and ten men have shown their kindly attitude toward this work by becoming 
members, an increase of 1 20 per cent, over last year. Such an attitude toward 
this work promises greater success for the future. 

Over sixty men secured positions through the medium of the association, and 
by this means earned part or all of their expenses. Thus the association is of im- 
mense practical value to those who come here without friends and to those who 
are dependent upon their own resources. 

A general secretary is employed by the association to superintend its work, 
and to give personal attention to those men who desire assistance. 

Several decided changes have taken place in the religious work this year, and 
as a result an increased interest has developed. Meetings have been held only when 
a speaker could be secured who had a message of distinct value to men. As special 
features Dr. Frank T. Bayley of Denver, delivered a series of eight lectures upon 
"The Intellectual Difficulties of Christianity;" Mr. A. J. Elliott of the Inter- 
national Committee of Young Men's Christian Associations and Dr. Lyman B. 
Sperry of Oberlin, Ohio, also addressed the men on popular subjects. The regular 
Wednesday chapel period has been utilized by Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. for 
joint meetings this year, and enthusiastic religious service has replaced the more 
formal chapel exercises. Seven bible study classes have been conducted by the 
association, and this work has been carried on in a scholarly and devotional man- 
ner. Grateful thanks are due Dr. Henry H. Walker for his care in training the 
leaders of these groups. 

The Young Men's Christian Association of the University of Colorado is 
more wide-awakened, active in its work this year than ever before. It is at present 
doing more for the general upbuilding of character in the student body than any 
other organization in the university.

When we compare the University of Colorado ten years ago with the Uni- 
versity of Colorado in 1907-8, we do not necessarily cast aspersions upon the pro- 
fessors who taught the smaller, and perhaps, less promising classes of that time, and 
similarly, when we compare the "Silver and Gold,, of former years with the "Silver 
and Gold" of 1907-8 we are not casting aspersions upon the ability of previous 
editors and the staffs which they directed. 

"lime passes"; it was inevitable that this institution thrived tremenduously 
during the passing of time, and so also was it inevitable that a "legitimate student 
interest' — the "Silver and Gold" — thrived and prospered in due proportion to the 
growth and expansion of the University. 

When we speak therefore of the enviable position the "Silver and Gold" of this 
year has attained among Western college papers, and of the new departure in college 
journalism which have been instituted, we are in no manner belittling the editorial 
efforts of former years, but we are merely emphasizing the fact that the "Silver and 
Gold" has more than kept pace with the marvelous advance of the University, and 
has proved a credit to that institution which we perhaps only dimly realize. 

Departures have been made from the beaten path — a football edition, a funny 
edition, a literary number, and a yellow edition have appeared at various times, 
and the accusation of "sameness" cannot be made. The various departments have 
have been ably edited, and the scope and extent of the paper is about double that 
of any previous year's "Silver and Gold." 

The general tone of the paper has been sensible and dignified; the editor has 
not stooped to the mud-slinging and senseless sarcasm so often noticeable in college 
publications; in fact, the "Silver and Gold" has truthfully reflected the activities of 
the students, and sanely commented upon those activities when the occasion de- 
manded. Such, we take it, is the mission of a college paper, and no one will deny 
that the "Silver and Gold" of 1907-8 has performed that mission wisely and well.

Nothing is more amusing to the men who live in \& oodbury Hall than the 
opinions of non-residents. Conclusions of the "dorm rats" imagine them as living 
in dingy barn-like rooms, where they can neither study nor enjoy life. "My, how 
can you plug when there are forty others around in the same building?" asked the 
astonished hall room boys. But, as a matter of fact, there is less disorder and 
noise in the dorm, than in the average rooming or fraternity house. True enough, 
at times there is a slight diversion. "Sphinx" Kimmel breaks his customary silence, 
and bent on indulging in a good "rough house," reeks destruction on all who oppose 
his will. "Peanuts" Reid, when not in football, basketball, baseball or track cos- 
tume, is completely outfitted in Prince Albert style and on his way to fussland. Joe 
I aylor's Websterian voice, at dramatic pitch, is omnipresent and when senti- 
mentally inclined, he startles the surrounding country with harmonious strains of 
Grand Opera! Other freaks abound, too numerous to mention, but over one and 
all, freaks and others alike, democracy rules, and there is an excellent spirit of good 
fellowship always manifest. 

Old Woodbury's walls have harbored famous men and still do. We have 
four of the football "C" men this year and a number of loyal scrubs; four of the 
basketball squad; a famous baseball aggregation, that has always defeated all 
comers, and track athletes galore. In fact, the entire University track squad makes 
the dorm, its headquarters, the shower bath being ever in demand, much to the 
d sgust of the residents! There also dwell here twenty-three Engineers, six Laws, 
five Medics, Seven College, one Special, a Professor, a Secretary of the University 
and an Editor! Surely a formidable array of men and not so much of the "rough 
neck" trend as might be generally supposed. 

All of the inmates of the dorm are organized under the government of a 
House Committee, which keeps order and redresses grievances. Many social song 
and feed fests are held on invitation of the differnt suites. The most elaborate of 
this year was the "Open House" party, given by Suite 1 2 to the rest of the 

The old reputation of "rough house" and disorder that clung to the name of 
Woodbury Hall five or six years ago has been steadily declining and passing away, 
and the dorm, stands today as the very nucleus of college life and activity, where 
social times are mixed moderately with good, serious work, and where good spirit 
is shown in any worthy cause of boosting for the 'Varsity.

The season of 1907-8 has been one of unusual activity on the part of the 
Oratorical Association. Three inter-collegiate debates, five local prize debates 
and an oratorical contest have been carried out and great enthusiasm has been 
maintained in this branch of student interests. 

The inter-collegiate contests were those with the Universities of Utah, Kansas 
and Missouri, and up to the time of going to press Colorado has already won one 
of these debates, that with Utah. This debate was held February 1 1 at Salt 
Lake City and Colorado was represented by Fred D. Anderson, Phillip S. Van 
Cise and Arthur E. Nafe. 

I he team which is to meet the University of Kansas consists of James W. 
Barrett, Merritt H. Perkins and Butler Disman. 

I he five local prize debates with winners are as follows: 

Senior-Junior Debate F. D. Anderson, '09. 

Sophomore-Freshman Debate M. H. Perkins, '10. 

Law-Engineer Debate C. E. Robinson, Law. 

College-Medic Debate H. C. Cornell, Coll. 

College-Law Debate F. L. Banks, Coll. 

The association also conducts exercises on Lincoln's birthday, Washington's 
birthday and Memorial Day. 

The officers for the year are: Rodney Rist, President; Fred D. Anderson, 
Treasurer; Merritt H. Perkins, Secretary. These, with Dr. Taylor and Mr. 
Poorman of the Faculty, form the directing board of the association. 


The Tennis Association reorganized this year with the following officers. 
Local tournaments and possibly an inter-collegiate tournament, are to be arranged

An' floatin' Irelands, custards, tarts, an' patty de foy grass; 
An' millions uv cove oysters wuz a-settin' round in pans, 

And other native fruits and things that grow out West in cans." 

Surely the poet's heart would have thrilled, and he would have been led to an 
even more exalted flight of fancy than the above lines could he have been present 
at the O'Connor on the evening of March 1 2, 1 908. Sixty-five loyal sons and 
daughters of Colorado had there assembled for the first Senior banquet ever held in 
the University, thereby adding another tradition to the large number established by 
the ciass of 1 908 to be handed down to successive generations of students. The 
committee in charge had worked well and faithfully, and promptly at nine o'clock 
we were ushered into the dining hall, which was tastefully decorated with flowers 
and silver and gold streamers. 

The banquet had been announced in advance as "progressive," and strange 
rumors were afloat as to the whys and wherefores thereof. But a moment's reflec- 
tion made all clear. The committee had numbered alternate seats; these were to be 
taken by the gentlemen, the intervening ones by the ladies. As a scheme to promote 
sociability and a first aid for the bashful this looked excellent — but there was one 
factor yet to be considered. It would separate Lois and Cleophile. Now, dear 
reader, I warn you never to try to place yourself between Lois and Cleophile. 
"Whom God hath joined together let not man put asunder." The idea of condemn- 
ing a mere man to attempt such a herculean task and keep it up for three hours was 
unthinkable. It is doubtful if St. Anthony himself could have stood the strain. 
Certainly none of us could, and hence in the brain of our strenuous president arose 
the idea of making the banquet "progressive," i. e., between each two courses the 
gentlemen arose and moved four seats to the left. Thus, by the application of Dr. 
Phillip's principles of the division of labor, the day was saved and no fatalities 

After the good things to eat and drink had been disposed of, came the feast 
of reason and flow of soul. Professor and Mrs. Pease were acting as chaperones, 


and President Curtis called first on the Professor, who responded to the toast, "As 
the Faculty Sees It." Perhaps the Professor felt the blood of Erin's Isle warming 
in his veins, for he told no less than four stories about Patrick. Then followed 
Miss Grace Slutz on "The Ramblings of a Senior," followed by Harry Sovereign, 
who warmly urged the class to keep in touch in years to come, explaining the method 
adopted by the Senior Engineers of having a permanent secretary keep track of the 
members and keep the others informed. Next the President called on Frank Downer, 
who responded to "The Law School." With glowing eloquence he described the 
Law Fire Brigade, and as an example of the scholastic erudition of the laws, related 
a spirited discussion he overheard between two Seniors as to whether a man having 
three wives was guilty of bigotry or trigonometry ! 

Next came the Medical School, represented by Clay E. Giffin. We say 
"represented" advisedly, for with him he brought the following note: 

Boulder, Colo., March 10, 1908. 

Dear Giffin: In reply to your urgent appeal to attend the class banquet to 

be held Thursday night, we have but this to say: We are studying for the state 

board examination. With hard work now most of us have a chance of getting 

through, but if YOU want to attend the banquet there is no reason why you shouldn't. 


However, Giffin's address on "A Misjudged Class" went far to cover the 
sins of his brother medics. When he had concluded, Curtis ventured a supple- 
mentary theory to that contained in the note. It appeared that a set of grind- 
stones had just been installed in the new engineering shops, and a crowd of medics 
had been seen wending their way thitherward, carrying butcher knives and othei 
implements of darkness. 

The next toast was, "The College of Engineering," responded to by Ralph 
Slitzer, and last, but not least, "Days to Come," by Miss Jett Condit. 

"Days to Come!" and over each one there came a full realization that these 
happy four years of college life with all their sacred associations were indeed draw- 
ing to a close. Four years we had toiled and striven together, four years which 
seemed so long at the beginning, but so short at the close. A few months more and 
we would be scattered, perhaps to every continent of the globe. Is it a wonder that, 
in the midst of jovial pleasure we paused, and each heart made anew its vows of 
loyalty to our Alma Mater and strengthened its resolutions of friendship formed here 
during those four years of daily companionship. 

THE Y. M. C. A. STAG. 

(September 13, 1907.) 

Gong! Gong! Gong, gong, gong! The chimes of Cottage No. 1 and the 
lusty yells of a bunch of men rang out clear upon the fresh evening air and caused 
consternation among the few Freshmen who were strolling around the campus. 
"The Sophomores had at last defied Prexy's anti-hazing order and were bent upon 
extermination," such was their only thought as they sought shelter, but soon came the 
Y. M. C. A. yell, "Meet me at the 'Gym! Meet me at the 'Gym," and the 
University songs, accompanied by the steady beat of the gong. Courage returned 
and the Freshmen came forth from their hiding places to join the procession. Truly 


here was an opportunity for them to see and hear the great president, the mighty 
captain of the football squad, and the coach whose word could drive men on to 
victory ! 

Once inside the Gym, a strange sight met their gaze. Surely this was not a 
Y. M. C. A. affair, for here was a prize ring, surrounded by seats, rapidly filling 
with eager spectators. They gasped and then swallowed their amazement trying 
to hide their embarrassment at being caught in such a place. They forgot them- 
selves, however, when a little man with black curly hair (Carr by name) came forth 
and announced a boxing bout between Fitzsimmons (Phelps) and Jeffries (Beres- 
ford). For three rounds these gentlemen lovingly caressed each other and then the 
mighty football captain called the bout a draw. (Great applause.) 

Again the curly-haired man came forth and announced that Coach Castleman 
would say a word. When the coach had made it perfectly clear that every man 
should boost all college activities the old Gym rang with cheers. Joe Gans (Carr) 
and Battling Nelson (Mahoney) then appeared on the scene and made things hum. 
After two rounds, both were carried from the arena and the referee announced that 
he was not able to decide who died first. 

At last the husky football captain was announced, and delivered a well-pre- 
pared impromptu speech, amid thunderous cheers, upon the glorious future of the 
squad. After Farnworth's talk the awe-stricken Freshmen were heard to murmur: 
"Ain't he great! He'll eat 'em alive." These sentiments, however, were drowned 
in the cheers for the captain. 

Then strolled forth two scrawny individuals with blood in their eyes (Van Cise 
and McClain) and attempted to do each other at Indian wrestling. With three 
throws for each man, this was of necessity also called a draw, although Van Cise felt 
that he should have the decision as he threw his man first. 

As a fitting climax to the program, President Baker made a few remarks in 
which he welcomed both the old men and the new to the University and then led in 
a number of rousing Colorado yells. The upper classmen warmed up, the Fresh- 
men thawed out, and when the President finished every one of the 275 men present 
was enthusiastic for old Colorado and ready for the hot-dog sandwiches and coffee 
which followed. 


On the evening of May 4, 1907, the Woman's League entertained the men of 
the University with a campus party. Each building served in a unique way for 

In the dining room of Cottage No. 1 a country dance was held. Peals of 
music, scraping of feet and shrieks of laughter were heard early in the evening until 
quite late. 

The women's cloak room in the library, decorated in Japanese style, made i 
very artistic tea room. Girls adorned in the bright costumes of Japanese, served tea 
to the visitors. 

Large crowds were gathered in the Chemistry building, where an exciting 
auction sale took place. 

An entertaining vaudeville show, which proved to be one of the most popular 
events of the evening, was given in the Gymnasium. Fancy dancing, tight-rope 
walking, popular singing and speaking here held full sway. 


In a room in the Hale building a May pole, decorated with rainbow stream- 
ers, was placed in the center of the booth, where ice cream and cake were served. 

In the Girls' Rest Room of the main building people listened breathlessly to the 
revelation of their fates, told by Gypsy fortune tellers. 


Last fall when the Sophomores gave their barbecue I took "an old sweetheart 
of mine" and we set off for the "arena" with "great expectations." She was "not 
like other girls" and I was a "victim of circumstances." The "hard times" had 
made me so hungry that I could have eaten "the leopard's spots" and moveover as 
my supply of funds was low I recollected with pleasure that this was a free stunt 
and I would not have to interview my "golden treasury." 

It was in the "dark of the moon" and in the absence of "the light that failed" 
we had to go by the "light of the stars" and an occasional arc. I was "the path- 
finder" and "the pilot" was a necessary thing along the "crooked path" across the 

A "wierd picture" presented itself to our vision. There "among the hills" 
were "young maids and old" as well as members of the faculty and freshmen; all 
the beings of "past and present," all of "the American commonwealth" seemed to be 

I leaned over and told the girl that "if I were king" I would have the eatables 
brought to me and remarked that there was only "a fighting chance" of getting 
anything. But the "woman's will" made a "conquest" of me and forced me to 
undertake the "passage perilous." I knew that I was one of the "sons of adversity" 
and began to wonder "is life worth living" when a "woman's face" gave me a 
"change of heart" and I determined to go on to "the bitter end." 

I became "brave and bold," but I never had such a hard time "breaking into 
society." "Pride and prejudice" were thrown aside as "Prue and I" advanced and 
if I had not "Been Hur" protector she might have been crushed to death. As it 
was it came near being "a checkered love affair." "When a man's single" he 
would have a greater chance in such a crowd, but "Sentimental Tommy" would have 
stood no chance at all. All was "equality" in that crowd. We were "hedged in" 
so that we could hardly move, but we advanced "step by step," trying to get 
around "the pillars of society," who were the "blockaders" of our progress. 

The "reign of law" was passed and "the crisis" was coming rapidly. With 
"hearts courageous" we went "three speeds forward" and "by sheer pluck" and 
after fighting "fifteen decisive battles" we reached our "journey's end." I had 
"a terrible temptation" to kill "the man between," but I didn't. "Put yourself in 
his place" and you will know why. "Our mutual friend" was of much assistance 
to us, but on the whole our victory was "won by waiting," but even at that it was 
"dearly bought." The soup was made of "plain tales from the hills" and the "deer- 
slayer" had been busy on the "prairie" and so the feed was very good. We came 
back and reported "our wonderful progress." I had spent "10 nights in a bar- 
room," but had never seen such a good free lunch. When people got their sand 
wiches and coffee they went and sat around, a regular example of "pigs in clover." 
The struggle that night was "to have and to hold" and many of the freshmen would 
"Oliver Twist" around and get some more. 


"Afterwards" the "man on the box" announced that in "the pit" would take 
place a "battle of the strong" and that there would be nothing but "fairplay" "in 
the arena." The contests were good and "looking backward" I remember that 
they did have "ideas of good and evil." 

"We two" were soon "homeward bound" and were before long "far from the 
maddening crowd." 

And even when it is "20 years after" I will have pleasant "memories" of the 
barbecue of the class of 1910. 


The big tent erected on the campus back of the library was the source of much 
amusement on the night of April 3, 1907, for the County Fair, given to raise money 
for the Y. M. C. A. building fund was here in full progress. 

Both outside and inside of the tent the strong voices of the 'varsity boys could 
be plainly heard shouting loudly or calling through megaphones, "This way to Bogy 
Land. Everyone should be able to say, 'I have been through Bogy Land.' ' 
"Right this way to get your pumpkin pies like mother used to make." "Come and 
strike the nigger baby on the head. Every time you hit the baby you get a cigar." 
"Don't fail to see The Lady in Red." "Let the fortune-teller hold your hand." 
"Zaza!" "See Bosco, the snake eater. Anything is appetizing and relishing after 
you see Bosco devour horse flies and horn toads." "Don't miss the auction sale — 
one hundred pennants given away." "Here's where you get your nice fresh candy." 
"Pink lemonade here." "Fishing, fishing. Try your luck at catching fish; only 
five cents a line." 

The booths were elaborately decorated and were very attractive. 

The Engineers' booth was brilliantly lighted and served much amusement for 
those who ventured within. Various means were contrived to shock the unsuspect- 
ing comers. 

The Y. M. C. A.'s Bogy Land was very popular in spite of the frights one 
experienced in encountering horrible spectors while walking down the grewsome and 
winding passages. 

Within the side show of the Delta Tan Deltas one could witness feats per- 
formed by Famous 1 wins, Renowned Strong Men, Fat Men and Slim Men. 

The Sigma Nu's Baby proved to be one of the members of that frat whose 
black head was placed through a hole in a canvas and which kept dodging back 
and forth in violent efforts not to get hit with a ball. 

The Chi Omega's booth was decorated in large pumpkin flowers. The girls, 
dressed as Puritan girls, sold pumpkin pie and coffee. 

Within the booth of the Kappas sat Gypsy fortune-tellers, who related brilliant 
futures to many. Red ink served as an attractive means for having the palm red. 

These booths, as well as the snake eaters of the Sigma Phi Epsilon, the auction 
sale of the Betas, the candy booth of the Pi Phis, and the ice booth of the Delta 
Gammas were most popular. 

Every one who participated in the merriment would surely be willing to give 
cheers three times three for the County Fair. 



Perhaps the most auspicious and elaborately appointed social event that has 
been attempted by the class of 1909 thus far was the Junior prom which took 
place at Sternberg hall on the evening of January 3 I . 

For several days before the dance was given, the members of the prom com- 
mittee and a number of Juniors of all departments were busy with the decorations 
which, although simple, were unique and attractive. Cotton balls were suspended 
in profusion from the ceiling of the hall and from an end view the mass of white was 
strikingly picturesque. The musicians' balcony was draped with the cotton and a 
number of Teddy bears adorned the top of the railing. In the centre of the hall a 
huge cotton globe served for a moon in the moonlight dances. 

The dance itself was a big event in Boulder and university society. It was 
strictly formal in accordance with an established tradition in regard to Junior 
proms, and it was as elegant as it was formal. About 200 couples danced 1 6 
dances and four extras until the wee hours of the morning, but the propriety of the 
occasion fully warranted the correctness. A local orchestra furnished the music and 
rendered some delightful selections. Several striking melodies were played which 
called for several encores and they were freely given. 

The patrons and patronesses included President and Mrs. Baker, Mrs. Wyhe 
J. Anderson of Denver and the deans of the various schools and their wives. 

A large number of out-of-town people, mostly from Denver, were in attend- 
ance, and the Denver papers commented upon the dance, as a result, in a most compli- 
mentary manner. 


Boulder, Colo., February 22, 1908. 

Dear Ma: I didn't get up until ten o'clock this morning, having been to the 
Sophomore german last night. I never before knew what a german was, but they 
are just delightful. When I get back home I am going to give one down at the 
school house. 

Now that I have nothing else in my head, I might as well tell you all about it. 
George called for me at 8:15, (you know that George is the boy I spoke of in my 
last letter, the one with the curly brown hair and lovely big cow eyes). We went 
down to the hall and it was perfectly grand; all decorated in festoons of silver and 
gold crepe paper. On one side of the hall was the musicians' balcony and on the 
other was what I just took to be a lemonade stand. However, it turned out to be 
only a nook where the favors were kept. 

Soon after we arrived the music started; and such music! It was just that 
fine, one could dance to it all night. Then the orchestra struck up the grand march. 
I think that grand marches are simply the most convenient things; one can see who 
everybody came with, and what they have on. But it must be awful hard for the 
boys to take such short steps. After the march we got the dearest little programmes; 
and the dance began. 

After a time a man blew a police whistle and announced that the next dance 
would be a german. All the boys got on one side of the hall and the girls on the 
other. The order was given to change sides, and confusion reigned supreme. After 


a time, tin whistles and fools-caps were handed out and the german was over. I 
heard one man say that a german was a cross between a Virginia reel and a Maypole 

During the evening we had five germans, each a little different from the others. 
They were all very exciting. Before we were quite through dancing, some men 
threw some finely cut-up papers all over the floor and all over everybody. It must 
have taken them a year to make it all ; there seemed to be tons of it. 

Well, now I think I have exhausted my descriptive powers and will close. 

Your affectionate daughter, 



The flag rush of 1907 was a most successful affair. I know that the Fresh- 
men and the spectators thought so, and I think that even the Sophomores had the 
feeling that they had done their best. Anyway, the Freshmen won and they ought 
to have the credit. In the first place they put blue chalk on their faces so as to 
avoid attacking one another. Someone must have told them that heretofore the 
trump card of the Sophomores was that the Freshmen fought each other. Another 
streak of brilliancy was shown when the Freshmen divided themselves into a ready 
and a reserved force. The Sophomores linked themselves about the pole and looked 
most formidable. At the sound of the whistle the regulars of the Freshmen charged 
and in a moment all that could be seen was a mass of writhing legs and arms. 
The excitement was almost as intense among spectators as among the combatants 
and it was all that the Judges could do to keep the fair Co-Eds from entering the 
fray. It was just about a stand-off between the two forces when the Freshmen re- 
serves rushed in and with new force hurled the few remaining Sophs from the pole 
and boosted their man up to the flag. And so the flag rush was won in exactly five 
and one-half minutes, and the Freshman Class of 1911 had freed themselves from 
the wearing of the green caps.

(H^ Gtalbg? Mm 

The way that kid does shake the dough, 

And spend on every dance and show, 
Does surely make his daddy go. 

He spends some fifty bones a week. 
He'll never after knowledge seek. 

His ma thinks he is very meek; 
But Lord, she don't know Jim. 


You know my Jim, he's off at school. 
And my boy Jim, well, he's no fool ; 

Why, my boy Jim, he minds each rule. 
He don't play football 'cause, you see. 

He knows that it would worry me. 

His dad thinks Jim is wild, but he — - 

Well, dad, he don't know Jim. 


Yes, Jim McKay has flunked this course, 

I let no students use a horse ; 
I'd think that he would feel remorse, 

His father pays his way in school ; 
In spite of college, he's a fool, 

He's mean and stubborn as a mule; 
His father don't know him. 


I wish that Jim would study more, 

His clothes are strewn about the floor. 

He sings loud songs and slams the door; 
His bunch just think he's out of sight, 

But he is not, by a damn sight; 

But this I know, and know I'm right. 

That bunch — they don't know Jim. 


A college man's my Jim McKay, 
And on the day he went away 
He said he'd write me every day. 
I know the reason he doesn't write 
Is just because he's busy quite, 
In spite of this he is all right, 
I love my Jim McKay. 



That Jim McKay does have the "mon," 
He's jolly and a real live one 
And certainly is lots of fun. 
It's true I have no crush on Jim, 
It's nice to be so rushed by him. 
And when I want to I'll ditch him, 
But he will do for now. 


My dad thinks I am sort of fly, 
But I don't see the reason why. 

He ought to know that I'm no guy. 
It takes the coin to come up here 

For college learning is some dear 

And I've a hunch from what I hear 

That I'm the candy kid.

They filed up the old stairs slowly in ones and twos and stood in the hail in 
tight little jams. All talked in low voices. Now and then the voice of the lecturer 
could be heard through the open door; the previous class had not been dismissed. 
Two girls came up the stairs laughing. 

"O, don't hurry! Dr. Libby says, 'come up the steps one at a time,' " said 
Miss Hartsburg. 

' 'But don't despise the lowest when you are on the highest,' " finished Miss 

"Keep an open mind," came through the open door in Dr. Libby's well-known 
voice and then the class in education came out reluctantly, and with thoughtful faces. 

"Isn't he the dearest man?" giggled Miss Wolf. 

"If I ever," said Miss Montgomery, seriously; "if I ever know half as much 
as he in all my life, I'll be happy." 

Dr. Libby came from behind the desk and seated himself on one corner (it is 
always the northwest corner). 

"Well," he began, stroking his chin, "I was very much pleased on the whole 
with the examination papers, and I must say that with a few exceptions none of you 
need to worry about getting through. Some of you need to get right down to busi- 
ness and do what you're told. I hate to flunk a student; it hurts my opinion of my 
teaching. I remember the time I was flunked — I'm pleased with the sympathetic 
echo from the class. Well, as I was saying, I don't work by serving machine rules. 
If a student improves steadily in his examinations, I'll pass him. But I don't mean 
that you're to make twenty-five on the first test and ninety on the fourth to show 
how much you could improve." 

"Do you see what I mean there? Well, you say, What's the point? * * 

"Ferrier lectures loosely, like all good lecturers." The class laughs and Dr. 
Libby laughs with them. 

"It's possible you may know more about it than I do, but I don't believe it. 

"Well, now, what chapter have we in Fullerton today. We were talking 
about sensation and perception. Open your books. Miss Elwell, will you read?" 

Miss Elwell reads. 

'If a man lays his hand on my shoulder, I may be a little in doubt whether I 
feel a sensation or not — 

Dr. Libby: interrupting: "I should think that would give you a very vivid 
sensation. Do you see what he's saying there? Why is it we always bet on the 
touch rather than on the sight? I can't answer that. It's a good thing to sometimes 
admit you don't know. I remember once of going into a school room, I think it was 
the fourth grade, (I was due upstairs to give a lecture) and I sat down on top of a 
desk and chatted with those youngsters. I'd ask them questions just for fun and then 
tell them I didn't know the answer myself. Now, grade teachers don't do that." 

"A woman has sense enough to sit down when she's falling; a man hasn't." 

"Pneumatic — it's a Greek word, pneumatic tires, that is full of spirit; hot air 
is the same thing." 

"Sleep in church is a blanket of protection to children." 
"It's the point of view." 

"White is a perfectly angelic color; it gives you all the rays and keeps none." 




Oh, Eppie, dear, 
When you are near 
I sadly fear 

You'll charm me yet. 


To your little goatee 
I am a devotee; 
Its style has smote me, 
And don't you forget. 


Your accent cute, 
The cut of your suit, 
All strike me mute, 
In charmed surprise. 


So debonnaire 
In your German air, 
And your fluffy hair 
Quite takes my eyes.

The Great Detective's Harrowing Adventures in Running Down Baffling Mysteries 

Surrounding the Faculty. 

The speaker at the convention of the student body in session at the Co-op 
took long, deep draws on a charred bulldog pipe, and cast an inspecting eye over 
the rows of tobacco cans an a nearby shelf. Everyone about stood or sat motion- 
less, awaiting a remark which was known to be forthcoming from the worthy presi- 

"Believe me, fellow students and gentlemen (the latter he always included in 
his introduction in case one might be present), there is a deep and apparently baffling 
mystery associated with the actions of the faculty. Something has transpired of 
which we have not learned and cannot gossip about, nor even surmise the nature of. 
Our keenest and most astute pryers into other people's affairs have been unable to 
unearth any intelligible facts, and as subject matter for gossip is reaching a low ebb, 
we must awaken and take action. We should elicit the aid of one of the members 
of "Secret Service" of which we read in our early cigarette smoking days. Old 
Sleuth, the great detective, should be sent for and placed on the case at once. 

No sooner had the great detective's name passed the lips of the speaker than a 

loud and general acclamation in favor of the project arose. 

¥ •£ ¥ V 

Three days later a dapper looking gentleman with a penetrating steel grey eye, 
and carrying a suitcase, might have been seen to alight from a street car on Uni- 
versity hill and glance searchingly about him, taking in at an instant everything in 
minute detail that his vision fell upon. He directed his course toward the quarters 
of the president of the student body a block away, changing his disguise three times 
with such dexterity as to allow no one to determine how or when the transition 
occurred. On reaching the place, without ringing or other formality, he entered and 
found the president sitting with his back toward the door, drawing deeply upon his 
bulldog pipe, and wrapped in profound thought. The entrance of the detective 
was not noticed at first, but a slight cough caused the president to turn about in his 
chair and face the visitor. 

"Ah," said the president, "Old Sleuth, the great detective. I recognized you 
at once from the pictures on the front of the nickel novels." 

The detective nodded, and modestly flitted the ashes from his Havana londrone 
with a carelessness characteristic of all great detectives. 

"Then you are ready to go to work on the case at once?" queried the president. 

"Immediately," replied Old Sleuth, whereupon the president drew up a chair 
opposite his own, politely invited the detective to be seated, and began to explain 
the situation regarding the mysterious actions of the faculty. 

That evening a stranger might have been seen to walk across the campus 
toward Old Main, and disappear in the darkness of a shadow of the building. He 
was disguised as a Freshman — which disguise caused him to be passed entirely un- 
noticed by those he met. 

Presently footsteps were heard on the footbridge. 

"Hist," Old Sleuth uttered below his breath. (He often uttered sibilant 
sounds below his breath.) And with this he slunk within a darker shadow of the 
building just as the outline of the human form drew near. 


"Aha! At last I have a clew," he muttered, and placing on a set of false 
whiskers that he might not be taken for any of the faculty of the college of liberal 
arts, he quietly emerged from his hiding place. Through the darkness the keen eye 
of the detective recognized the approaching form as that of President Baker, and 
beneath the president's arm a large volume was noticed to be tightly clasped. As 
the president drew nearer Old Sleuth stepped to one side, assuming a stiff, still-like 
pose, the profusion of his whiskers causing him to be taken for a lilac bush. On 
up the steps and into Old Main the president continued, and, as the last echoes of 
his footsteps died away, Old Sleuth stood and pondered. 

"What could the president of the University of Colorado need with such a 
large book? Is there so much as that book contains that President Baker does not 
know?" thought Old Sleuth, placing the point of an index finger stiffly against his 
forehead, and with the other hand stroking his long beard, a characteristic pose and 
habit of the detective when engaged in deep thought (the stroking of his long beard 
characteristic, however, only when he had the long beard on). As the detective 
stood, again footsteps on the bridge were heard and Dr. Taylor, bearing under his 
arm a package, which the detective ascertained was a pile of themes, approached and 
entered the building. Then from the direction of the library came Professor Lewis, 
carrying several volumes which the detective recognized through the darkness as 
humorous writings of Gene Pield, Bret Harte and Peter Dunne. Hardly had the 
door swung to on the instructor in English before Dr. Brackett, with a black, square 
box concealed beneath his coat, stealthily slunk from shadow to shadow and slipped 
almost unnoticed into the building. In rapid succession came Dr. Libby with a 
set of apothecary's scales. Then in turn came Dr. Henmon, Dr. Willard and 
Professor Cleaves. The detective noticed immediately that no smile played upon 
the countenance of Dr. Henmon and Dr. Willard was not smoking. 

When the last had entered the building Old Sleuth did not ponder long in 
determining that there was a mystery in the actions of all. He had weighed care- 
fully the results of his observations, and determined to follow the matter to the end. 
Thereupon he stealthily entered the hallway, placed his ear to the keyhole and his 
sharp sense of hearing made it possible for him to understand every word said, though 
on the inside all spoke in subdued tones. From his pocket he drew a combination 
mirror device, which by placing to the keyhole he could see everything that was 
transpiring in the president's office. He noticed that a book in the hands of Pro- 
fessor Cleaves was entitled "How to Recognize Anyone Through Any Disguise," 
and the pile of themes on a table in front of Dr. Taylor, he determined, were those 
of the advanced composition classes. 

While the detective was making mental notes of what he saw, President Baker 
arose and called the meeting to order, correcting himself after starting out with 
"Students of the university." Then the president continued in a low, deep tone: 
"The student body have determined to learn great and grave secrets, carefully and 
jealously guarded by the faculty of the University of Colorado, and, my trusty 
lieutenants inform me, have secured the services of Old Sleuth, the great detective of 
'Secret Service.' We must thwart them in this movement." 

"Bravo," rose a response in chorus. 
"Zounds," quoth Dr. Taylor, as an echo. 


Professor Thompson did not respond. He was too deeply engrossed in the 
study ol stimuli and the mob mind. 

"We must nip this sinister motive in the bud, defy them, baffle them in their 
attempts," repeated the president with increasing emphasis. 

Again the lusty cry arose from all, even Professor Thompson this time being 
affected by the stimuli, and Dr. Taylor following with an echoing "zounds." 

With this Klemme was called upon to tell all that he knew regarding what 
action the students were taking, and he explained that his first deduction that some- 
thing unusual was on the minds of the student body was based upon a sudden in- 
clination toward civilization on the part of the occupants of the dormitory. This was 
received as startling information by all, but more wonderful grew Klemme's story 
as he described a strange Freshman who did not cut across the lawn, but kept at all 
times on the sidewalks, and went into the library for the actual purpose of reading. 
All agreed that this strange fellow was no other than a detective in disguise. 

Dr. Taylor was called upon next. He stated that in the themes of his ad- 
vanced composition class he had determined by reading between the lines, the entire 
secret of the plot. The students had something on their minds when they wrote the 
themes, and through this method he had learned all. 

Dr. Libby was the next to be called upon. But he admitted not being able 
to throw any light upon the subject as he only weighed the examination papers of 
his classes, and did not read the lines, let alone reading between them. 

Professor Lewis began to quote Mr. Dooley's philosophy on detectives, when 
President Baker arose and asked all for suggestions as to what action should be taken, 
and called for volunteers to carry out suggestions that might be offered. 

"I," said Dr. Brackett, "with my camera, will take pictures of the detective in 
all of his disguises as we find him, and in this Professor Cleaves, who is studying up 
on disguises, will assist me, and within a short time will be able to identify anyone." 

Then the meeting adjourned and all filed out into the night just as Old Sleuth, 
who had listened at the keyhole to all that was said, slunk into a shadow of the 
proposed new auditorium. He had assumed the pose of a pile of brick, when sud- 
denly there was a blinding flash, the click of a camera shutter and the deep tones of 
Dr. Brackett's voice was heard: "Well done! as a design for architecture this pic- 
ture will do for my illustrated lectures in literature and art." 

When the detective walked toward his room a few minutes later he met only 
a few late fussers returning home, and but here and there glared lights from students' 
windows where poker soirees were in session. In his quarters he threw himself into 
an easy chair, drew from his pocket a handsome jeweled cigar case and proceeded 
to light up for a smoke and general reflection over the occurrences of the night, when 
he was suddenly startled by the snap of a camera shutter, followed by the deep 
tones of Dr. Brackett's voice: "Well done, the high lights and artistic effects were 

The following morning the detective arose after such a sleep as only a hard 
night's work will induce, and after smoking a mild Havana londrone in his room, 
during which time he laid plans for the day's work, he proceeded to the quarters 
of the president of the student body. To that worthy he explained all that he had 
seen, heard, and experienced the night before, but as to action proposed for that day, 
he kept that shrouded in the darkest mystery. 


"You have done well so far," said the president, "and if all that you tell me 
is true regarding Dr. Henmon's smile and the great book in the custody of Presi- 
dent Baker, and you can learn why they are or why they are not, there will be 
enough subject matter for gossip, and your duty will have been well performed." 

With these encouraging remarks, the great detective took leave, and started 
toward the library. There he met Miss Nafe with an armful of Freshman themes 
and sundry other articles. She was wearing a hat, which greatly surprised the de- 
tective, who knew she generally went bare-headed, and at the same time set him to 

"She might have something on her mind which she wants to keep under cover," 
he exclaimed, his thoughts dwelling upon the headgear. 

As he turned he was again startled by the click of a camera shutter and the 
deep tones of Dr. Brackett's voice: "Superb! that picture shows the lake to be even 
larger than those in the catalogue." 

Directly to the president of the student body Old Sleuth went to tell his dis- 
covery and supposition regarding Miss Nafe's headgear, but his theories were 
promptly shattered by the information that James Barrett was also wearing a hat, 
and it is commonly known that he has no thoughts at all to cover. 

The bell for the 1 2 o'clock classes rang, and Old Sleuth walked to the main 
building. Assuming the countenance and bearing of an exceptionally brilliant 
student, he passed into the Shakespeare class room unnoticed. A passage in the 
lesson, somewhat obscure as to meaning, was brought out and lengthily discussed 
without a solution resulting, when Dr. Taylor conclusively dismissed it with a re- 
mark that "goodness only knows! but any of you can find out if you try." 

"Aha!" thought Old Sleuth, "I would infer from that that he knows, but 
will not tell. I have a clew. I now know all, and the whole thing I will divulge. 
The Ramaley and Lewis babies have become mixed, a melo-dramatic theme passed 
in advanced composition class without adverse criticism, the beatific smile of Dr. 
Henmon has been stolen by a fair co-ed, Dr. Willard has sworn off smoking, and 
that book carried by President Baker was a treatise on etiquette. I have deduced 
it all, and the baffling mysteries have at last been solved." 

As the detective left the classroom he was again startled by the click of a 
camera shutter and the deep tones of Dr. Brackett's voice: "Well done! an ex- 
cellent background giving a full view of the office of the English department, with 
good perspective." 

Directly to the president of the student body the detective went and told all 
that he had learned and deduced. 

With tears of gratitude in his eyes the president grasped the hand of the great 
detective, exclaiming, "It is that book of etiquette that has changed President Baker 
so, and the others have been influenced. As to the accompanying secrets, in them 
there is gossip enough to keep the co-eds going for the remainder of the semester." 

With this Old Sleuth was handed a signed check and told to fill it out for any 
amount he wished. 

There was consternation among the members of the faculty when it was 
learned that the secrets were out. But there was nothing to be done. The pictures 
of the detective, taken by Dr. Brackett, were used in the catalogue, and in the annual 
appeared a sufficient number of Old Sleuth's disguised likenesses to represent the 
class of special students of the university. 


Who's Who in the Frat World 

Who've for hard cases long been known, 
In library ways quite wise have grown, 
And hanker for high social tone. 
The Alpha Taus. 

Who shrink not from a copper's mace, 
Who know just how to plead a case, 
And free men from the law's embrace. 
Phi Delta Phi's. 

Who think their arrows pierce men's hearts, 
Who practice smiles, beguiling arts, 
And rush a man by fits and starts. 
The Pi Phi's. 

Which is that Frat mysterious, 
O'er which men grow delirious, 
It surely can't be serious. 
T. N. E. 

Who have receptions in the halls 
And hold men up along the walls, 
And so get bids to all the balls. 
The Delta Theta's. 

Which is the Frat we do not know; 
They are not fast, they are not slow, 
But busy Medics, as you know. 
Omega Upsilon Phi. 

Who wear those cunning little keys, 
And through the halls like busy bees, 
Strive every man to catch and please. 
The Kappas. 

Who in the midst of gossip rife, 
Lead placidly the "quiet life;" 
Nor venture in the world's cold strife. 
The Dela Taus. 

Who want to manage everything, 
And near and far self praises sing; 
At social stunts, too, like a fling. 
The Delta Gammas. 


Who stroll adown (lie campus walks. 
With girls (Frat girls) have frequent talks, 
And for "long green" have eyes like hawks. 
The Betas. 

Whose years out here are only three, 
A very young Fraternity ; 
Too young to comment on, you see. 
Sigma Phi Epp. 

Who know all sciences by heart. 
In all things hard are smart as smart; 
The thought itself makes us all start. 
Tau Beta Pi. 

Who have been brushing up of late, 
Been bidding girls at wondrous rate; 
The word we want's rejuvenate. 
Chi Omega. 

Whose names through megaphones are pealed. 
And hailed aloud on Gamble Field, 
And never to their foeman yield. 
The Sigma Nus. 

Who long for high society, 
In parties have variety, 
But come close to satiety. 

Alpha Chi Omegas. 

Who are as bright as they can be, 
And never know a con or C, 
And rarely ever get a B. 
Phi Beta Kappas. 

Who try to be exclusive quite; 
Call on a swell girl every night. 
Whose store of good looks, though, is slight. 
The Phi Delts. 

Who just set back to be admired, 
In paddocks neat, who go attired, 
And think they're all to be admired. 
The Sigs. 

Now do not think that these are slams; 
Let one and all join friendly hands, 
In the tie for which your good name stands,

Of things we've learned some aeons since 

Last year, to be precise. 
(To say you knew it all before 

Is not considered nice.) 

To chapel you, of course, will go, 

Four times a week, to hear 
The well-meant yoke — perchance to shed 

The penitential tear.

It more than once a year.) 

But if you do, do not forget 

Your absence slip. Prof. Ayer 

Says this omission adds unto 
His facultative care.

Of course, is your affair.)

Will never bring remorse. 
In fact, it is the method that 

The faculty endorse.

I was requested to act as judge for the big debate. Promptly at eight o'clock 
I reported for my heroic duty and there met the other two judges. After instruc- 
tions were given to us we were herded into the auditorium, being carefully guarded 
so as to eliminate all chances of bribery. It is needless to say that we composed the 
entire audience. The program listed twenty-five, but at that time I did not realize 
what twenty-five speakers meant. At promptly nine-thirty the first speaker was 
announced. To this speaker, with his flood of oratory, I listened closely and when 
he finished was almost convinced that we needed another world. To the next five 
talkers I listened attentively, but as the sixteenth and seventeenth rolled by I began 
to tire. The next man completely put me to sleep, but I awoke in time to see that 
one button was misssing from his coat and as a consequence I marked him down to 
33 per cent. I must confess, that although I didn't hear a word of their talk, the 
next four absolutely failed to make any impression on me. One man was red 
headed and I just cannot and will not give anything to red headed people. Then 
came a man who raved and tore his hair and with a Nathan Hale gesture assumed 
a dying posture and said, "I have only one life to give and I will give it." This 
sounded like cool and remarkably logical argument so I gave that debater 1 00 
per cent. On they came, to me it seemed in droves. One man used the words 
"pickled platitudes;" that seemed clever to me, because I always did like pickles, 
so I gave him a high mark. And so it went; one debater killed himself by looking 
me straight in the eye and another hadn't had his pants pressed for about six 
months. I cannot stand such utter laxity of the foundation principles of reasoning. 
Like the passing of exquisite music the last Demosthenes fizzled out and I was pre- 
paring to give my report when it was proclaimed that each speaker still had a five- 
minute rebuttal. I gave up hope right there and went to sleep. When I awoke I 
heard the floor walker tell us to retire, a statement that I consider as a rank insult. 
Each man was to have a choice of one man and as I came first I picked Nathan 
Hale because at that time I felt heartily in sympathy with that one life business. 
I guess the other judges each selected one apiece because we sailed forth with our 
decision. The names were read and greeted with great applause and we three 
learned judges, followed by daggery glances from the debaters, walked out. I am 
in favor of salaried judges.

thing going? 

ALMA — Well, I've got all my work assigned, but there won't anybody take it 
— can't some of you get after some of these pikers? 

NlCK — Miss Roberts, I think that would be a good job for you. 

BOBBY — Well, I think I'm having troubles enough of my own! I've been 
trying all week to get somebody to draw things, but nobody — 

Fan (looking out the window) — There's Andy, over by the library now, fuss-

on him? 

NlCK — Say, speaking of cartoons, how about putting in Morrow as the

have been hard to break away!

RosiNA — Alma, how do you like those dear little spring hats at Madam 
Lewis's? Aren't they too sweet for anything?

earlier — ■ 


Fan — Had a pressing engagement, didn't you?

ANDY — We've got to get a wiggle on in this work; things are getting stuck in 
the mud. Any of you gazaboos rooted up any dope —

the Board. This body is supposed to represent the highest type of erudition and 
scholarship to be found in the University, and therefore should — 

TOMMY — Dry up, Jimmy, save that for the debate. 

NlNA — Alma, where do you get your hats? 

JlMMY — Dry up yourself, Tommy ; this crowd needs to be set right, and I am

can rustle up some advertisements. Anybody know anyone we could strike?

JlMMY — By the way, the board ought to have its picture taken without any 
further delay — 

TOMMY — Delay, eh? Well, anyway, we aren't as slow as that athletic de- 
partment of yours. There's only one equal to it, namely, its editor. 

NlNA — Oh, Alma, I think that is just the prettiest picture of yours down in 
Gosha's window —

Andy — Order! Order! Say, Jim, don't talk so much. Do we want to 
have individual pictures or group? 

CHORUS — Individual! Group! No, I say individual! Oh, the group will 
look ever so much better! Oh, I think group pictures are just horrid! — 

(At this point the bell rings.) 

ANDY — Well, we'll meet down at Gosha's on Saturday at, say, eleven o'clock 
and decide then. Anybody who can think up anything in the meantime bring it

Fussing His Little 

Leap Year 

3ln (EiiUrg? ^nrirty 

Strange as it may seem, my presence was requested at the biggest society 
event of the year. The fateful night arrived and at the time appointed I rammed 
my hand down in my pocket to see if I had money enough to pay admission in 
case it was charged, assumed a Gideon Dodd's walk, and soon was before the 
meeting place of the University three hundred and ninety-nine (I considering myself 
the four-houndredth). As I stepped to the door, I was very much frightened to 
see a large number of single men lounging around the porch. They slouched here 
and there and indeed looked very dangerous. However, my fears died out as I 
looked closer and recognized "Chic" Hayt, because I then realized that they 
were only the usual bunch of "stags" to be met at such places. I safely passed 
by, entered the house, shed my coat and was off down the receiving line like a shot. 

I met "Prexy" Baker for the fiftieth time and yet he didn't recognize me. A 
last I rung up at the last receiver, swirled into the maddening crowd, and dropped 
into the nearest convenient chair, Beside me sat a girl, a girl I was supposed to 
entertain ; one of those youthful high school prodigies who sat there like a sopho- 
more in one of Dr. Libby's classes. There was nothing said until I got her started 
on her home town and now I think I could go to that town and find her "Papa's 
store," blindfolded. The girl on the other side of me was very stupid. I told 
her that I didn't like to move around very much for fear of breaking the five- 
dollar bill in my pocket. She couldn't see the clever joke, so I left. 

When I arose everyone was listening to Patrick Henry Morrow reciting 
"The Charge of the Light Brigade." With a flourish of oratory, he benumbed 
and stupefied the audience, hurled the brigade at the gang, fainted, and was 
carried away. 

Someone, dangerously close behind me was attempting a joke, and I, seeing 
that Bud Knowles was the author, did not take any chances, but fled. 

On all sides, big things were now doing, the football team was lined up, 
explaining that a ball two yards from a goal line is not a touch-down and J. C. V. 
and Prexy were earnestly discussing the political outlook. In one corner Editor 
Weinberger was still reciting the "Annual" page by page, and Frank Sharps 
was trying to float some co-op stock. Dr. Phillips was holding a seminar on the 
subject of millionaires, and "Push" Armour was listening very attentively. 

I found myself in conversation with a senior co-ed and all went well until 
she blurted out that she thought Emerson was the editor of the Argosy, and I waded 
into another section of the ampitheatre. There I found the same commotion: 
Dunklee was settling forever the question of the financial panics, and Dean 
Ketchum was trying to talk to Professor Evans. In the middle of the group, 
Mr. Lewis and Dr. Ramaley were talking to each other and with great emotion 
were moving their hands as if they were swinging something. I wondered and 
thought but could not even make a guess about their conversation until some Fresh- 
man made a noise like a baby and then I realized. 

The people were beginning to segregate. Walsh had one section ready to 
give a yell and Garst had the other. Everybody hearing a great noise at one end 
of the room, forgot the rooting practice and turned to see what was the trouble. It 
was only a scuffling match between Millard twins, but Tom Nixon availed himself 
of the opportunity and getting upon a chair grabbed Walsh's megaphone and 
announced that the next Dramatic Club play — 

I picked out a fair damsel and tried to talk to her, this time on athletic 
subjects, but she was so far behind that she didn't ever know that "Heine" Barr 
got a "C," for his football course. 

In my path was Dean Hellems, sad and dejected, because he had not 
been called on to make a speech, and with him, Professor Willard, who had 
coralled a few innocents and was talking to them about the early Anglo-Saxon 


According to Roberts' Rules of Order the next order of the day was supper. 
When they called the name of Edward Mills three gentlemen stepped forward to 
cla.m that name and they finally decided to step out on the front porch to settle 
their difficulties. 

We filed into the dining room and partook of the lunch which consisted of 
orange ice and lemonade with frosted icing. To say the least, it was decidedly cool. 
Each one present was supposed to give a little rhyme, and after Dr. Norlin had 
repeated Kipling, I arose and made the hit of the evening with my classic: 
"Play a little ping-pong, 
Have a little chat, 
Make a little chocolate fudge, 
Then go find your hat, 
Say you've had a jolly time, 

As she waves her fan, 
Now, isn't that exciting sport 
To tempt a healthy man?" 
President Baker was the next speaker, and arising with great dignity, began: 
"University Students: I will talk to you about some American Problems." 
But Mrs. Baker hastily pulled him down and whispered in his ear, "James, this 
is not a meeting of the State Universities. Do not mix your Problems with this 
delightful ice cream." 

We were delayed a little on account of one fellow at the end of the table 
who for some unexplainable reason could not handle the slippery ice cream with 
his knife, and as a result had to take two or three trials at each bite. 

The feast being over, we all stood around quietly and then it seemed as if by 
signal, we all made a bolt for the cloak room. On rushed the wild aggregation. 
Professor De Long leading, presumably being afraid that somebody would steal 
his overcoat. I put on my coat, selected a hat that looked pretty good, and pre- 
pared to go down the long line that was already made up, waiting to bid the guests 
a speedy haste. As I stepped out the hostess said, "Won't you spend an evening 
with us soon?" 

"Yes," answered I unthinkingly, "An evening is probably all I could spend 
just at present." 

I melted away, and on thinking it over, realized that I had spent an evening in 


Castelucci, a fusser of "reknaown," 

He came from "Dear Old New Yawk Taown." 

And can make people believe 

That he ne'er can deceive, 
If they look in his eyes of deep "braown." 
Casty is a lad who wears the best of clothes; 

The boys all watch him for the styles — that's the only art he knows. 
He's ever courteous and polite — a Sir Raleigh in disguise — 
But girls, look out, he'll catch you if you look into his eyes.

GOOD QUALITY in clothes is 
really a valuable means of teaching economy. 

Lots of people go through life thinking they're 
economical when the fact is they're simply low- 

For a man who believes this — a Hart Schaff- 
ner & Marx suit gives him a liberal education — 
he learns how much economy there is in really 
good clothes. 

We'll give you a lesson here any day; come 
in and learn about Clothes-Quality.

DENVER, COLO. March 10, 1908. 

Mr. W. W. Degge, 

The Wellington Sy3tem, 

Boulder, Colorado. 

My dear Mr. Degge :- 

I am witing to thank you for the courtesies extended to 
me yesterday on my self solicited interview with you for the purpose 
of making an independent investigation of some features of your 
Wellington System, and informing myself on var Lous' points for the 
benefit of our inquiring subscribers. The courtesies extended, and 
the confidence which you reposed in me, I as-.ure you that I appreciate 
very highly. 

I want to go on record as saying that there was no feature 
of your System which I enquired into that you hesitated in explain- 
ing down to the most minute, and most personal detail. Further, 
when I told you the purpose of my trip you volunteered permission 
for me to examine any hook, record, or document in your offices, and 
gave me at different time's during the day access to your ledger, 
trial balance 3heets, files, bank book, documents in your safe, etc. 
etc. Every feature to me was what I might characterise as open-and- 
above-board, and in your Mr. Fisk you certainly have a very careful 
and valuable assistant who keeps all your accounts and records in an 
exceptionally clear and comprehensive manner. 

I have always felt secure in your assurances, as well as 
having other infonnation in my possession, that your dividends have 
been legitimately earned, and now I have the additional knowledge 
by having myself been shown your records. I reiterate, there have 
never been any doubts in my mind on thi3 score, and yesterday you 
submitted tangible and convincing evidence. 

When I give it as my opinion that your System is not only 
legitimate but entirely meritorious, I know that you will not con- 
sider that I am violating my policy as an independent writer by 
leaving the slightest Inference that I am endorsing or advising your 
stock as an investment; and accordingly I hereby authorize you to 
maice whatever use you are disposed to of this letter, hoping at the 
same time that it may be of some service to yourself, and those who 
have invested their money with you. 

As an independent writer I have always endeavored to dis- 
play the courage of my convictions, and in thi3 unsolicited letter 
I am simply testifying to what I have seen with my own eyes. I wish 
you every success in your various flotations, and with kindest re- 
gards to yourself and family, I am 


The above letter was received after Success forms were made up. It was unsolicited and entirely unexpected, 
and therefore all the more appreciated. Mr. Newton's visit was entirely in the interest of subscribers to Profit and 
Loss, who were asking for information from an unprejudiced source. Harry J. Newton is conceded by all to be 
absolutely independent with no mining or stock connections, and above suspicion.
